Poetic Pen Pals: The Letters of Wendell Berry and Gary SnyderDownload audio (MP3)
For more than four decades, two American literary icons -- author Wendell Berry and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gary Snyder -- corresponded with each other on topics ranging from art to the environment to their personal lives. Many of those letters have been collected in a new volume "Distant Neighbors: The Selected Letters of Wendell Berry and Gary Snyder," published by Berkeley's Counterpoint Press. Snyder and Berry join us to talk about their long-distance writerly relationship.
Host: Michael Krasny
