Review: Talk Show: Confrontations, Pointed Commentary, and Off-Screen Secrets

Talk Show: Confrontations, Pointed Commentary, and Off-Screen Secrets
Talk Show: Confrontations, Pointed Commentary, and Off-Screen Secrets by Dick Cavett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’m a little disappointed that this is a compilation of Cavett’s newspaper essays & not a memoir of his tv show, but boy! is he ever snarky and funny and smart.

I enjoyed it, but nothing about it felt pressing. This is the kind of book you’d be happy to find in your room when you are someone’s house guest; you can dip in, read an anecdote or two to help you fall asleep in unfamiliar surroundings, and it won’t haunt you if you don’t finish before your stay is over.
