WORDS ON A WIRE: Patricia Engel
Charles Baudelaire, ca. 1863


   Daniel and guest co-host Marcia Hatfield Daudistel talk with Patricia Engel about her new novel, "It's Not Love, It's Just Paris."  Patricia explains why the book is a result of wanting to write a "Paris" novel as well as a love story without being a stereotypical "French romance" book.   She also explains why she was lucky to avoid the "chick lit" label on her previous books.

In this week's Poetic License, Benjamin Alire Saenz begins a series in which he reflects on Words, Knowledge, and Memory.  In this entry, Ben explains how he approaches all three in his life and his work.

And in this week's Poem of the Week, Daniel reads "Be Drunk" by Charles Baudelaire.

Aired Dec. 1, 2013.
