New Hampshire Insiders

We’re getting into a New Hampshire state of mind this hour–taking in the colorful palate of presidential candidates. For Herman Cain, the road to the White House is paved with stumbling blocks as sexual harassment allegations dwarf his popular tax plan--and his popularity. As his star fades, Newt Gingrich’s is on the rise. Recent polls show him cracking double digits for the first time since he jumped into the race.

In New Hampshire voters have only a few more weeks to shop around with the Granite State primary is slated for early January. But, with big campaign bucks being thrown around is the NH primary even relevant anymore? We’ll discuss with our New Hampshire insiders: New Hampshire Union Leader editorial page columnist, public affiars consultant, and former chair of the New Hampshire Republican Party Fergus Cullen, and Concord, NH based radio and TV commentator based Arnie Arnesen.

Walter Mosley on The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey


Walter MosleyLate last year, Walter Mosley joined us to talk about his latest novel, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey. Mosley’s protagonist, Ptolemy Grey, is an old, ailing recluse living in a dump of a cluttered apartment. His mind, on a downward spiral of dementia, is equally cluttered with a mashup of memories: the death of his wife, the lynching of a friend, his service in World War II. Then everything changes when he’s offered a Faustian bargain—a drug that will restore his brain in exchange for a shorter life. He takes the plunge, hoping mental clarity will help him solve a murder. Though Mosley may be best known for detective novels, his writing spans all genres: literary fiction, science fiction, crime and social commentary. In The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, Mosely uses threads from all of these styles to tell the story of mortality and morality.
