In previous books, he's written about the development of an early microcomputer, profiled a doctor on a mission to cure disease in developing nations and depicted the day-to-day drama of a family building its first new house. Now, with longtime editor Richard Todd, Kidder reveals the secrets of great storytelling in his new book, "Good Prose: The Art of Nonfiction."
