I was interviewed yesterday by Andrew Roblee of the Seward House in Auburn NY.  Here is the link.

I have not, I think, talked in this blog about the Seward House, but it is an amazing place, “worth the detour” in the immortal phrase of the Michelin guide.  One feels as if Seward were still in the house, as if he was about to come round the corner, cigar in one hand, wine glass in the other, to ask whether you will not have just one more glass of this fine light wine.  It was really a visit to the Seward House, early in my research, that cemented my desire to research and write the Seward book.  We are a long way away now, but still supporters of the Seward House Museum.
