I discovered Alistair Cooke's "Letter from America" in 2002, I think, and listened to it regularly until he died in 2004, only a week or two after his last broadcast. He spoke about the people he met, about his musings on the week, about politics and world events, and about his observations on the character of America and Americans. I saw this book in Barnes and Noble in the winter of 2004, and when I read from it, I could hear Cooke's voice in the ear of my mind, witty and wry and full of observations about the world.
