Tolkien Professor on NPR

I know it’s Monday and everyone is expecting a Great Books post, but I can’t resist pointing you all to an interview posted on NPR’s site yesterday with my colleague Corey Olsen AKA the Tolkien Professor.

In the interview, Olsen discusses his new book, Exploring J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” (see here for more), which you should buy immediately if you haven’t already. We also get to hear audio of Tolkien reading a passage from the riddle game between Bilbo and Gollum, so it’s well worth seven minutes of your time to listen.

Great Books tomorrow, I promise!
