Mary Roach, 2021: “Fuzz”

Mary Roach discusses her latest book, “Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law” with host Richard Wolinsky.

The author of several non-fiction works that examine specific areas of life that are rarely covered elsewhere, Mary Roach brings a sharp eye and excellent research skills to explain how things work, how they don’t work, and the various things that happen in between.

“Fuzz” deals with such issues as animals killing humans, pests in the fields, attempts to control invasive species, animal burglaries (watch out, Yogi Bear!) and even birds destroying flowers in the Vatican.

In this interview, she discusses many of these issues, plus adds some information that never found its way into her book. Toward the end, she talks about her research, and offers advice on how to research on your own.
