As part of our holiday programming, we revisit our interview with writer Dave Eggers. He talks about his new novel titled A Hologram for the King, which follows a struggling, middle-aged American businessman working in Saudi Arabia. Eggers joins us to discuss the book, and one of its central themes: the decline of American manufacturing. We also get the latest on Eggers' efforts to promote college access and literacy for youth.
