Writers On A New England Stage - B.J. Novak

NHPR and The Music Hall present Writers on a New England Stage with B.J. Novak, recorded live at The Music Hall in Portsmouth.

Best known for his role as “Ryan the Temp” on The Office, Novak talks with us about his debut collection of short stories One More Thing which he thinks is even more revealing than a memoir.

I kind of thought that if I wrote my own life story, I would hide myself. So I thought, forget that, I'm going to write all the ideas I've ever had. That is my life story. These are the things I think about all the time. These are the ideas I've had forever.

We’ll also get his take on his rising fame, and the not-so-heavy burden of being a celebrity author.
