The award-winning journalist and author of “Krazy: George Herriman, A Life in Black and White,” returns with his newest book, “My Father When Young.” It’s a collection of recently discovered mid-century photos taken by his father as a young man in post-war Europe, his Indiana home, and New Orleans during Mardi Gras. A beautiful Kodachrome time capsule, the book is a window into a life before domesticity and responsibility took over. Michael joins the Troubled Men as they enjoy the view.
Topics include going meetless, a Dave Alvin connection, potholes, 3rd World pride, car repairs, road work, Britney Spears, a caper, Cosby freed, a film option, a pack rat, a secret life, Olympic trials, an overseas call, the Norske Nook, gay Mardi Gras, a mother-in-law, ebooks, the Sager Group, Jude Acers, a prison chess program, “The Queen’s Gambit,” Gilbert Gottfried, chess on the radio, a final question, and much more.
