Best of the Book Nook: The Assassin, by Clive Cussler


Clive Cussler, who died last month, was a publishing legend. Over the course of his long career Clive Cussler sold over 100 million books. Not bad, for a guy who had to resort to trickery to obtain his first publishing contract.

Cussler was immensely prolific and would often produce a book every 3 months. They were not meant to be great literature. His intent was clear; he wished to entertain his readers. In 2015 his publicist suggested that I might want to interview him. So I did. He was affable, and pleasant, and very down to earth. Here's a special segment of the program as we remember Clive Cussler.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
