Welcome to the beginning of Spring and the end of March. Today we’ll travel from an enclave of expatriate writers living in Rome to the end of an American era played out on the baseball diamond, to the parts of our brains that we think make our decisions.
Tom Rachman talks about his very well received debut novel, The Imperfectionists.
Nesxt, Maggie Linton talks with Jane Leavy about her biography of Mickey Mantle, The Last Boy.
And we’ll think about the choices we make with Harry Beckwith’s new study about marketing, Unthinking: The Surprising Forces Behind What We Buy. But first, Maggie has the top-ten downloads for the month of March from audible.com. [Broadcast Date: March 29, 2011]
