Which is more important: animal rights or native ecosystems? Life or ecology? And should humans be the ones to decide? In T.C. Boyle’s new novel, “When the Killing’s Done,” a park service worker clashes with an animal rights activist against the bucolic backdrop of the Channel Islands off of Santa Barbara. He joins us in the studio.

Guests:
T. Coraghessan Boyle, author of 22 fiction books, including "The Women," "Wild Child" and his latest, "When the Killing's Done"
