LAWRENCE BLOCK AND ROBERT SILVERBERG TALK SLEAZE

Back in the late fifties through to the mid Seventies, a good number of writers served their apprenticeships writing soft-core sex novels for paperback publishers.  Many of them , including Lawrence Block, Robert Silverberg, Donald E. Westlake, John Jakes, and Evan Hunter, moved on other genres and to great acclaim and best-sellerdom.

On May 17, 2011, Block and Westlake got together at the Belmont (CA) library to talk about those early days in their career.  Here's a ten-minute segment from their discussion.

Enjoy.
