Today we welcomed Rick Springfield to the BookPage offices. In a video interview (coming to our YouTube Channel on Monday!) Fiction Editor Abby Plesser asked the author—who, as a voracious reader, was very interested in the office bookcases—about his candid new memoir, his family life, his music and more. One moment that we didn’t get on camera: Springfield says that more than one fan has told him that after reading Late, Late at Night, they were inspired to smell their dog’s feet. “You were right: they smell good!”
Look for more Springfield on Monday. Until then, rock out on this Friday afternoon to the original “Jessie’s Girl” video from 1981.
