In the first half, National Book Award winner Pete Hautman joins us to talk about his newest novel for young people, How to Steal a Car.

In the second half, James Levine discusses his book, The Blue Notebook, a novel inspired by the plight of child sex workers in Mumbai. Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns said, “_The Blue Notebook_ is a deeply moving story and a searing reminder of the resilience of the human spirit. It is a tribute to how writing can give meaning and help one transcend even the most harrowing circumstances. The voice of Batuk, the unforgettable child prostitute heroine, will stay with the reader a long, long time.”
