By Lawrance Bernabo HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on May 2, 2003
Format: Paperback
"Chris-in-the Morning: Love, Life, and the Whole Karmic Enchilada" is one of those books I would have loved to have put together. Louis Chunovic is not the "writer" of this "Northern Exposure" book, but rather has "Compiled and Edited" the proceedings, which are, of course, based on the television series created by Joshua Brand & John Falsey. The idea was to take pretty much everything said by the character of Chris Stevens (played by John Corbett), the voice and soul of the borough of Arrowhead County for everyone who loyally listens to K-BEAR's "Chris-in-the-Morning" radio show. I am not sure if every quote was actually uttered over the air, or simply in the radio station, and not on the streets of Cicely, but you get the idea. The result is that from the literal call of the wild to the complex vagaries of love to the fine art of curing a hangover, this book provides (in its own words) "a veritable aurora borealis of Chris's own recollection, speculations, dreams, and philosophies."
After an introduction that recalls how reading Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass" changes his life from a budding hooligan of fifteen into an artist, this book is divided into two sections. Part I consists of Raps, Rants, and Wrenching Times. We are treated to The Chris Stevens Story, culled from his walks down memory lane, and then Chunovic tries to get thematic, with mixed results. Remember, for the most part these observations are divorced from the original context of their respective episodes.

Chris in the Morning is a wonderful collection of the Chris Stevens we all have come to love. I have all the episodes on tape, and granted, I could watch them all and listen to him execute his lines with eloquence, but , hey, sometimes it's just great to sit down and hear his voice in your head while reading this terrific book. I like to just open and and recollect a favorite episode, (but then again we love them all!) It's fun, it's Chris. Buy it.

Format: Paperback
This book is a collection of quotes from our favorite DJ from Cicely, Alaska: Chris Stevens. This book is divided into categories and chapters, so it's easy to find something about a particular topic or occasion. Some of the quotes are short one-liners, and others are long passages that delve deep into the meaning of life. Either way, they're all gems, and it brings back memories of all those great episodes, and the faraway town of Cicely, Alaska. Pull out this book when you need to relax, or when you just want to hear what Chris has to say about the things in our everyday lives.

This is an out-of-print book that I've been looking in used stores for for years. I finally decided to just purchase online. Glad I did. It's a fairly simple read, maybe 1-2 hours, but it sure did take me back to the show. All kinds of quotes, stories, and sayings, primarily from Chris the DJ. It also has numerous pictures of just about every cast member. Anyone might enjoy this, but fanatics of Chris and "Northern Exposure" should love it. It goes well with the soundtrack. This book can be found many places online, but for many times the original cost. Watch for the new "NE" DVD too.

This book is a must for all Northern Eposure fans out there! Chris' insight into love, life and the whole karmic enchilada will give you smiles and possbily provoke some inner reflection on how you view the world.
A great book!
(Wish I lived in their world in Cicely Alaska)

Many of the witticisms and reflections herein wil tickle your fancy even if you've never seen the show. But enough of them hinge on knowing a character or remembering an episode that it'll be most appreciated by someone who's actually seen (and remembers) the series.

If you enjoyed the television show Northern Exposure, you will enjoy this book. I only wish that there was a radio station in real life that was as cool as Chris in the morning was.

Loved the show when it was on and Chris had so many things to say, amazing topics and to get to read his words that were on the show was great. If you are a fan of Northern Exposure, you will absolutely enjoy this read.
