KIRKUS REVIEW

Pierre Burton is a glib Canadian television interviewer and he has collected twenty-two of his interviews in the belief that they are ""symbolic"" of our time."" His guests range all the way from Malcolm X (""The black community has yet to form a vigilante committee. This is why we aren't respected as human beings"") to Murray the K (""I would think the kids today wouldn't get heartbroken very readily"") to marguerite Oswald (""Lee didn't have a formal education, but he had the know-how."") Many others are unfamiliar, but include an unwed mother, a mumber of a murder jury, a young gatecrasher and an espresso priest. Even if formerly taboo subjects may be approached, it's still right off the top--not probing, not really shocking. Just entertaining.
