Thanks to faithful listener Charlie for pointing us to this reference to Bob in the new book by novelist Jim Harrison:
Up at 5:30 a.m., coffee, oatmeal, perhaps sausage (homemade), and fresh eggs giving one of the yolks to Lola. Listening to NPR and grieving more recently over the absence of Bob Edwards who was the sound of morning as surely as birds.
That excerpt was cited in a New York Times blog post about Harrison's many references to NPR and public radio in his latest novel, "The English Major." You can read the post clicking here.
