Pamela Paul

Pamela Paul is the editor of the New York Times Book Review, and oversees all the book coverage at the paper. She also hosts the Times podcast The Book Review. That, in and of itself, would provide plenty of subjects for an interview, but there's more. Paul is also the author of a series of provacative books about family life in contemporary culture. She started with The Starter Marriage and the Future of Matrimony, next came Pornified: How Pornography Is Damaging Our Lives, Our Relationships, and Our Families. Her latest is something of a departure, but it too has a catchy title, and lengthy subtitle. It's called My Life with Bob: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books, Plot Ensues. Bob is what she calls the journal she has kept for 28 years about the books she has read. My Life with Bob is a book about books.

On this podcast Debbie talks with Paul about books and book reviewing. “At heart, a good book review is a good piece of writing. It should be not just a guide to ‘should I read this or should I not’”.
