Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Bill Goldstein joined The Three Tomatoes for our February Happy Hour Book Club. We’re huge fans of him and his segment “Bill’s Books” on NBC’s Weekend Edition Today in New York.  He is also the founding editor of The New York Times books website. His love of books is contagious. He talked about some of his favorite books of 2020, and some of his picks for 2021. And we had a wonderful conversation about his book, The World Broke in Two: Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster and the Year that Changed Literature and the book he is currently working on.

Watch the video interview.

Here are some of his book picks:

Hamnet, Maggie O’Farrell

Mirror and the Light, Hillary Mantle

Writers and Lovers, Lilly King

Shuggie Bain, Douglas Stuart

The Prophets, Robert Jones

Just as I Am: A Memoir, Cicely Tyson biography

Philip Roth: The Biography, Blake Bailey
