Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tracy Kidder has long been acknowledged as a master of literary journalism. In previous books, he’s written about the development of an early microcomputer, profiled a doctor on a mission to cure disease in developing nations and depicted the day-to-day drama of a family building its first new house. Now, with longtime editor Richard Todd, Kidder reveals the secrets of great storytelling in his new book, “Good Prose: The Art of Nonfiction.”

Guests:
Tracy Kidder, author of "Good Prose: The Art of Nonfiction" and other books including "Mountains Beyond Mountains" and "Strength in What Remains"

    Good discussion. The modern evolution of popular language & vocabulary, syntax, call it what you will, is interesting. Thanks for having Mr Kidder on.
