A Literary Conversation with Nicholas Basbanes

by AirTalk®

Larry talks with literary critic and columnist Nicholas Basabanes. His latest book, "Editions & Impressions," brings together the best of Mr. Basbanes' book journalism. In it he describes a library springing up on the battlefield in Iraq, a Swedish palace library left unfinished when builders walked off the job three centuries ago, and his meeting with one of the most prolific book thieves of the twentieth century.
