What did Ray Bradbury, James Baldwin, Susan Sontag, Ernest Hemingway, and Hannah Arendt all have in common? They were all victims of FBI surveillance under J. Edgar Hoover. You can listen to my radio interview, which ran yesterday on Arts Express WBAI 99.5 FM NYC, with J. Pat Brown, editor of Writers Under Surveillance, a collection of FBI files obtained through the Freedom Of Information Act, by clicking on the grey triangle above.

    • Thanks, Gallagher. On re-listening to the unedited audio of the interview, J. Pat Brown says the man who the FBI thought was John Lennon, was in reality a guy who worked for Lennon’s record label who had a passing resemblance to John.
