Denise Griffitts - Your Partner In Success™ Radio Interviews Ken Atchity - Things Every Great Story Has to Have


Anyone who enjoyed Mircea Eliade’s autobiographical multi-volume Exile’s Odyssey, Oliver Sacks’ The Man Who Mistook My Wife for a Hat and Awakenings, or Richard Feynman’s Surely You Must Be Joking, Mr. Feynman, will find My Obit: Daddy Holding Me a page-turner filled with poignant family experiences, explosive sibling rivalry, literary adventures, ethnic cooking, wide-ranging storytelling, the workings of the brain itself--and what can be learned about life from playing tennis for decades. The jokes and recipes alone are worth the entrance price.

Terrific podcast / interview! Ken Atchity is Titanic - I have a couple of his books. Funny he occasionally says "Long Story Short" ... in his case I would LISTEN to the LONG Story. And probably with rapt attention! Thanks Denise Griffitts, great stuff! Cheers, Mick
