Re your being the kiddie book guy for Saturday edition: Have you read any of Canadian author Gordon Korman’s books–they have a little less class, but remind our family of your style of humor. We’re currently reading A Semester in the Life of a Garbage Bag.

Daniel replies:

Never heard of that Canadian guy. The publishers send stuff in, most of it completely horrible, and I go though it trying to find something good, or interesting, or at least suitable for a conversation on the air. At the rate stuff comes in at present, I'd say the odds are something like 40 to 1 against a book being discussed, but if you feel strongly about this author, suggest to the publisher that they send something in to Weekend Edition Saturday, National Public Radio, 635 Massachusetts Ave, NY, Washington, DC 200001, Attn: Me.
