The New York Times Book Review calls Tom Barbash "a true craftsman who sweats over every sentence," and says the stories in his new collection are "addictive." The Marin County-based fiction writer and journalist joins us in the studio to talk about his new book, "Stay Up With Me." We will also mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks -- which Barbash dealt with in his 2003 bestseller "On Top of the World" -- and talk with him about the legacy of those tragic events.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Tom Barbash, author of the new story collection "Stay Up With Me," and of other books including the novel "The Last Good Chance" and the nonfiction book "On Top of the World: Cantor Fitzgerald, Howard Lutnick & 9/11: A Story of Loss & Renewal"
