I felt giddy just typing the headline. I enjoy The Bonnie Hunt Show. In some ways, it’s a throwback to the era of the 1970s Mike Douglas show–but with a twist. Hunt, a former oncology nurse, frequently campaigns for her cancer charity (as is her right–and for which I admire her). So it did not surprise me that she got novelist John Irving to discuss his battle with prostate cancer (he was on the show last week), as shown in this clip.
Irving is my favorite living novelist, and I am glad he is still living. Oh, and if you didn’t know, his new novel, Last Night in Twisted River, was released late last month. I cannot wait to read it.
