John Irving & Galley Cats Star in KCRW Video

Novelist John Irving made a cameo appearance in a new KCRW pledge drive video (embedded above).

The short video gives you a peek behind the scenes at Michael Silverblatt‘s Bookworm show. Irving reads from his new novel, In One Person, while kittens tumble around the sound booth–a cuddly set of literal galley cats.

Here’s more about the Irving episode of Bookworm: “Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Irving (The Cider House Rules) returns, this time with In One Person (Simon & Schuster), a novel about the life and times of a bi-sexual man growing up around actors, boxers, transsexuals and librarians. The novel culminates in New York during the AIDS crisis. Irving is back to form, even speaking about how his son’s sexuality influenced the novel.”

Editor’s Note: This GalleyCat editor is married to a KCRW producer.
