Love and Other DelusionsIt's Valentine's Day 2014 - and due to a snowstorm we are postponing the live interview scheduled for today (John Geiger with "The Angel Effect." ) I was looking for a past show that would fit with the theme of the day - LOVE in all it's myriad forms - and I believe it is fair to say that is Larry Baker's prevailing theme.  I hope you enjoy this rebroadcast.

Iowa City author, Larry Baker, has written five novels, including "Athens, America" and "The Flamingo Rising". His most recent book, "Love & Other Delusions", presents a fresh take on the story of a married woman having an affair with a younger man.Larry Baker

Larry Baker is currently an adjunct Assistant Professor for the University of Iowa, as well as an adjunct instructor at Kirkwood Community College. Baker is also working on a documentary about the creative process, focusing on the writing of "A Good Man," in which Baker drew on, or "stole" as he would say, from a variety of predecessors.  Check out Monica's review of "A Good Man" at http://www.writersvoices.com/books-review/books-review/good-man-larry-baker/. <--break->

"Love & Other Delusions" chronicles the complicated and confusing relationship of Danny and Alice over many years. You could read this as a tragic romance story, or you can go deeper into the psychology of love (and other delusions) like our author.

In2012,  Baker was chosen for inclusion on the Iowa Literary Walk of Fame.
