#1708: Russell Banks "Foregone" | The Book Show

This week, Russell Banks discusses his new book, Foregone. In the book, we meet leftist documentary filmmaker Leonard Fife. Fife is one of sixty thousand draft evaders and deserters who fled to Canada to avoid serving in Vietnam. Now, in his late seventies, he is dying of cancer and has agreed to a final interview in which he is determined to bear all his secrets at last.
