A Very Square Peg

A Discussion with Brian Collins

New Books Network 2000

Today I talked with Dr. Brian Collins, the creator of "A Very Square Peg." We talked about:

--How he discovered Eilser in a used bookstore in Ann Arbor

--How he didn't seem to be able to let go of Eisler once he'd found out about him

--How he researched Eisler, and how Eisler's life revealed itself to him

--How he decided to produce a podcast series about Eisler rather than writing a book about him

--What, after all his work, he thought about Eisler and his remarkable life

I hope you enjoy the discussion!
