Legendary television personality Dick Cavett hosts the first (and last) episode of “Books Can Be Your Buddies,” a chat show about books. In this episode, comedian and musician Dave Hill and noted author Malcolm Gladwell angrily discuss Dave’s new book, Dave Hill Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. Gladwell is fairly certain he’s been the victim of plagiarism; Dave Hill responds with an obscene drawing.
Watch below, then pick up Dave Hill’s book to see if Malcolm Gladwell is kidding—or not.
In Dave Hill Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, comedian and musician Dave Hill, with his signature matter-of-fact humor, explores his increasingly close relationship with his recently widowed father in a series of painfully funny essays you will want to read again and again by the fire, at the beach, in a truck stop men’s room, or just about anywhere. It’s your call, really.
