Writer Paula McLain combines fact and fiction in The Paris Wife, a historical novel about Hadley Richardson, the first wife of American writer Ernest Hemingway.
Then, Joan Miro (1893-1983) was a leader in the Surrealist movement and one of the great modern artists of the 20th century. He was also a passionate Catalonian with a deep connection to his native land. Bob talks with curator Harry Cooper about Joan Miro: The Ladder of Escape, on view at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC through August 12, 2012. Then, we close the hour with a visit to Miro’s now-crumbling country home in the Catalan countryside. [Broadcast Date: May 30, 2012]
