Peter Trachtenberg: ANOTHER INSANE DEVOTION

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, March 14, 2013 - 11:00am

PETER TRACHTENBERG is a writer and Assistant Professor at the University Of Pittsburgh. His latest book is titled ANOTHER INSANE DEVOTION: ON THE LOVE OF CATS AND PERSONS is a singular memoir that looks at his odd but intense relationships with felines and humans through the years. This is a work of non-fiction, though “still the facts in this book vary in their density.” This book wanders effortlessly from a discussion of blinking at cats to an intense interpretation of Masaccio’s “The Expulsion of Adam and Eve From the Garden of Eden “. This book is an enlightening and unexpected dissection of love through the ages. Can our love of cats inform our romantic love of people?  Tune in to get a taste of this unique and fascinating book.

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
