Wayne Booth tribute on Chicago Public Radio
On March 9, Chicago Public Radio’s "Eight Forty-Eight" program aired a nice tribute to Wayne Booth (1921-2005). David Thompson, Associate Dean for Planning and Programs at the University of Chicago, shared memories of Booth and discussed the impact of Booth’s 1961 classic The Rhetoric of Fiction, on literary criticism.
