Editorial Reviews

First, chief national political correspondent for The New York Times Richard Berke discusses the first 100 days of the new Bush Administration. Though the beginning of the Bush tenure has run smoothly, Berke talks with Charlie about the president's lack of experience on the national front. Then, distinguished writers Arthur Miller, Nora Ephron, John Guare & Frances Fitzgerald discuss the writers' organization PEN. PEN was founded in the wake of WWI by a group of European writers who felt that literature was a cause the went beyond political boundaries. Finally, Tobias Schneebaum is on to talk about his new book, Keep the River on your Right. It tells the story of Schneebaum's life living among Cannibalistic tribes in New Guinea and it is also being adapted into a documentary film by the same name.

4.0 out of 5 stars The P.E.N. segment December 10, 2007
This is a review of the PEN segment. Arthur Miller, Francis Fitzgerald, John Guare, Nora Ephron- four writers speak to Charlie Rose about the international writer's organization PEN. Fitzgerald tells how it was founded in the wake of the First World War by European writers. Ephron explains its purpose is to protect the freedom of writers everywhere in the world to write and think as they want. They speak about how the task of the organization is largely political and they give instances where it has helped free writers from jail.They do not however speak to the question of the overall political influence of the organization, how it deals with different kinds of regimes. They also do not get into the questions of how they work with powerful players, for instance the State Department in their work.
All in all I felt the discussion while interesting was a bit scanty.
