Publisher's Summary

Year after year, American students rank in the bottom third in international rankings of math and science scores. In reading, the U.S. doesn’t even make the top ten, trailing Canada and Estonia among others. In her new book, investigative journalist, Amanda Ripley, follows the lives of three American exchange students who spent a year studying in countries that consistently receive the highest marks to find out why children in Finland, Poland, and South Korea do so well. Her new book is titled The Smartest Kids in the World.

Then, the end of World War II brought a flood of optimism and dreams of great aspiration, both for the country as a whole and for many individuals. This is the back drop of Mark Helprin’s novel, In Sunlight and in Shadow. It’s a complicated love story that pairs a former paratrooper with an heiress in Manhattan. It’s now out in paperback. [Broadcast Date: October 3, 2013]
