Author Tom Barbash on Storytelling and the 9/11 Anniversary

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.
