“De Niro: A Life”: A big pile of reviews, interviews and whatnots

DeNiro Cover

It’s been a remarkably busy few weeks for “De Niro: A Life,” and I’ve been negligent in sharing the results of the activity.  That ends now.

REVIEWS

— Lisa Schwarzbaum weighed in for the New York Times Book Review

— Peter Tonguette did the same for the Christian Science Monitor

— In the Washington Post, Sibbie O’Sullivan  had a go

— At Flavorwire, Jason Bailey compared my De Niro book with my chum Glenn Kenny’s

— Maybe your Portuguese trumps mine; if so, check out this nice notice from Cassio Starling Carlos in O Vale

— Finally, Michael Chasin took a turn at IAFT.net 

 

MENTIONS

A few news outlets included the book in their holiday book roundups:

The Austin Chronicle

The Toronto Star

The Vancouver Sun

 

INTERVIEWS

— I spoke with April Baer on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s “State of Wonder”

— And I chatted with Dr. Alvin Jones on his Dr. Alvin radio show and web site.

 

As before, the book is available in print and/or in digital formats at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s, and other purveyors of words-on-paper and/or -screens.

"The best profession in the world is being a sacked coach. He gets up at 10.30 am, has breakfast, goes jogging, has a sauna, then reads the papers. Lunch with friends, a siesta, a walk, a meeting with his agent, off to the bank to check his interest.  On returning home, a fantastic supper with the family. In between there’s time to criticize someone he doesn’t know. Their parasitic lives fulfill them professionally and financially. My message is ‘Go to work, idlers. If you don’t want to, let others work in peace’.” — Jose Mourinho, 2005

“De Niro: A Life”: the questions and answers keep coming!

DeNiro CoverAnother Q-&-A hit the web this week, this one with the Portland Tribune.

And then there’s this humblingly positive review from Peter Martin at Twitch.

Publishers Weekly chimed in as well, somewhat neutrally.

There was a nice note about this week’s Powell’s event in the Portland Mercury.

I was on the radio in Ireland on the Moncrieff show, which went something like this (starts at the 7:00 mark).

Finally, my visit to KATU-TV’s “AM Northwest” resulted in this segment (Note to self: stripey shirt = not so much):

“De Niro: A Life”: They’ve got the Qs, I’ve got the As

DeNiro CoverIt is, apparently, an era of Q-&-A interviews — which, as a journalist I understand (it’s quicker) but as an author I rather bridle against (it’s more work to write my answers out than simply to say ’em).

Anyhow, “De Niro: A Life” has occasioned two such interviews in recent days:

One from Reuters which has been translated and published (often in print) all around the world.

One with my old friend Byron Beck, who currently writers for GoLocalPDX.

And, what the heck, one non-Q-&-A, a brief but enthusiastic item in Portland Monthly.

And if you’re weary of reading my words in Q-&A format, how about watching it?

Here’s my visit to KGW-TV’s “Live at 7”:
