Karl Marlantes on C-Span

By James Fallows

I've mentioned several times my enthusiasm for Matterhorn, a novel of Vietnam by my long-ago grad-school friend Karl Marlantes. I caught him on CSpan just now, in an hour-long interview you can see here. I don't think the interviewer (Ralph Peters) is likely to replace, say, Terry Gross as an interlocutor  -- Larry King, maybe! --  but Karl Marlantes himself is impressive and charming. Worth watching. (Screen shot below; no embedded video available.)
