Author Pauls Toutonghi joins the show to talk with Madeleine Brand about his new novel, "Evel Knievel Days."

The book is centered around the real-life Evel Knievel Days Festival and the main character, Khosi Saqr, a half-Egyptian man raised by a single mother, who, because of his ethnicity, struggles to fit into his hometown.
