Books and Beats with Stu Levitan
Jan. 17, 2009 92.1 FM The Mic
It was midnight in Tasmania when I talked with Stephen Dando-Collins, Australia's favorite writer of narrative non-fiction, about his captivating account of the mid-19th century war for Nicaragua, Tycoon's War: How Cornelius Vanderbilt Invaded a Country to Overthrow America's Greatest Military Adventurer (Da Capo).
David Maraniss, Madison's favorite journalist son, is in Kenya researching his biography of Barack Obama. But before he and Linda left, we talked about the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner's first-ever book of collected works, Into the Story: A Writer's Journey Through Life, Politics, Sports and Loss (Simon and Schuster).
Hope you can join us.
