Good friend and currently hot novelist Christian Bauman (The Ice Beneath You) was interviewed for 30+ minutes yesterday by Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air. You can hear a Real Audio replay of the event at

Tery was kind enough to play a song by Chris. As Chris noted, "I can't believe she even played my music. It took me quitting fucking folk music to get NPR to play my music. It won't sell as many albums as dying a young, tragic death, but quitting might be second in smart career moves to make as a rock star."

Of course, the real question is does an interview on Fresh Air sell books. CB informs us, "Yesterday morning my Amazon sales rank was 400,000-something. This morning it was 207. Pretty decent."
