Inspired by her family history, the stories in Molly Antopol's new collection "The UnAmericans" take readers from Communist Prague to McCarthy-era California, to present-day Jerusalem. The author and creative writing instructor at Stanford University was named one of the National Book Foundation's "5 Under 35" last year. Molly Antopol joins us to discuss her book, and what she found when she dug into her family's past.
