Today we welcomed Rick Springfield to the BookPage offices. In a video interview (coming to our YouTube Channel on Monday!) Fiction Editor Abby Plesser asked the author—who, as a voracious reader, was very interested in the office bookcases—about his candid new memoir, his family life, his music and more. One moment that we didn't get on camera: Springfield says that more than one fan has told him that after reading Late, Late at Night, they were inspired to smell their dog's feet. "You were right: they smell good!"
Look for more Springfield on Monday. Until then, rock out on this Friday afternoon to the original "Jessie's Girl" video from 1981.
Comedian Sarah Silverman's first book came out on Tuesday. Called The Bedwetter, it's a hilarious (and foul-mouthed!) memoir that you'll gobble up in one sitting. Friend-of-BookPage Stephenie came up with some questions for Silverman, and I think you'll find a few of her answers surprising. Here's a teaser (click on the image to read the whole thing):
Have you read any good memoirs lately? Will you read The Bedwetter?
