Colum McCann and John Freeman on Writers on Writing

Colum McCann joins Marrie Stone to talk about his latest novella and short story collection, Thirteen Ways of Looking.  He talks about his attack in New Haven, how it's impacted his writing, what remains important to him, and what single novel he returns to again and again.

In the second half, John Freeman talks about editing the anthology, Tales of Two Cities, The Best and Worst of Times in Today's New York.  He discusses the NY housing crisis, the juxtaposition of wealth in NY, treating people with dignity, and how homelessness can divide a family.
