Stephen Metcalf is writing a book about the '80s and he doesn’t like to talk about it.
But Stephen’s back from a recent book leave, and Julia Turner and Dana Stevens, his Culture Gabfest co-panelists, have finally pinned him down. They were allowed five (and only five) questions about Stephen’s book project.
This week’s entire ad-free version of the Culture Gabfest is embedded below. To hear Stephen’s answers in this week’s Slate Plus bonus segment, go to 42:10, or click here.
