For the past few days the author has been busy doing numerous interviews, conferences, documentaries and talk shows. This is the day when the Times magazine publishes the article on the author’s work. The author is satisfied with the way the magazine has handled the article. The author goes for a radio interview with Mike Wallace. He is apprehensive about the whole thing. The host however soon puts him at ease and the interview session goes off very well. In fact the interview is so remarkable that Wallace orders his crew to cancel everything else and schedule the interview immediately.
This part of the diary vividly describes the author’s feelings about the Wallace talk show, as well as depicts the unique character of Wallace. Before the show the author is very anxious, cautious and nervous of Wallace. But when he meets him face to face, he is pleasantly suprised to find that Wallace’ feelings towards him are similar. Griffin finds him stumbling for words, which is very reassuring. Wallace is a superb host. He is full of enthusiasm and encouragement, as also commitment. So the author is supercharged and the show comes out excellent - a memorable experience for the author and superb handling by Wallace.
