David Hajdu, author, The Ten-Cent Plague

My guest today, David Hajdu, is the author of a new book that – at the very least – probably has the best title of the year, The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America.

In this book, Hajdu looks back at a hysterical period in American history – one of many, to be sure – when comic books were considered such a threat to our way of life that the industry nearly vanished.

Hajdu is also the author of Lush Life: A Biography of Billy Strayhorn, and Positively 4th Street: The Lives and Times of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Mimi Baez Farina and Richard Farina. He teaches at the Graduate School of Journalism with another friend of the Mr. Media podcast, Sree Sreenivasan – and is the music critic for The New Republic.
