An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
David Maraniss, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, is also the author of 13 works of nonfiction, including When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi, Rome 1960: The Summer Olympics that Stirred the World, and Once in a Great City: A Detroit Story. His new book is Path Lit by Lightning: The Life of Jim Thorpe, which, says the Wall Street Journal, “[reveals] Thorpe as a man in full, whose life was characterized by both soaring triumph and grievous loss.”
Maraniss recently discussed Path Lit by Lightning with author/attorney Talmage Boston. Listen to the podcast here.
