Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Anthony Horowitz has written dozens of books for children, including the teen superspy series featuring Alex Rider. He's also written for adults, including the critically acclaimed British TV show Foyle's War. Horowitz tells Anne Strainchamps his special interest in children's fiction has its roots in his own troubled past.

Then, Ellen Handler Spitz is the author of many books on psychology and aesthetics. She talks with Jim Fleming about her latest - The Brightening Glance: Imagination and Childhood.

Next, Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Michael Chabon has written both for adults and young readers. In a recent book of essays, Manhood for Amateurs, Chabon tackles his own childhood. Here he tells Steve Paulson how his past still influences his writing.

And finally, we hear a montage of clips from classic children's books, then Steve Paulson talks with Julia Mickenberg, co-author with Philip Nel of Tales for Little Rebels. Mickenberg tells Steve that some of the best known children's book writers were longtime political radicals. [Broadcast Date: September 23, 2011]

Listen to Manhood for Amateurs by Michael Chabon.
