Political / historical writer David Talbot’s latest book is also his first work of biography. Between Heaven and Hell is an account of the stroke he suffered, and its aftermath. This Project Censored Show presents a talk Talbot gave in January 2020 at Copperfield’s Books in Petaluma, California. In a candid – yet often humorous – presentation, Talbot describes the ‘otherworldly’ sensations he experienced, the caregivers he met in a month-long hospitalization, notable moments in his journalism career, and reflections on life and death.
David Talbot founded Salon.com, and was Salon’s editor-in-chief for its first ten years. He also wrote Brothers, The Devil’s Chessboard, and Season of the Witch, as well as an opinion column for the San Francisco Chronicle.
