Lone Wolfe – Paula Marantz Cohen – Episode 29

In this episode I had the great pleasure to talk with Paula Marantz Cohen about Nero Wolfe and specifically her essay looking at the Rex Stout novel Too Many Cooks. Dr. Cohen has also written the excellent book Of Human Kindness: What Shakespeare Teaches Us About Empathy, as well as her partially Nero Wolfe inspired novel What Alice Knew.

Topics we cover include Shakespeare, Dickens, Henry James, and what gives writing staying power. You won’t want to miss this thoughtful conversation on Stout’s work.
