In ‘Hark,’ people try to make the world better, but the world refuses

“Bookworm of the Month Club” is a new Press Play segment in which KCRW’s Bookworm Michael Silverblatt brings a book or two each month to share with listeners. We begin with Tosh Berman’s memoir “Tosh: Growing up in Wallace Berman’s World,” a window into the 1950s-1970s Los Angeles art scene. We also look at the novel “Hark” by Sam Lipsyte.
