Allan Gurganus: The Practical Heart
Listen to/Watch entire show:
The Practical Heart (Knopf)
Allan Gurganus talks intimately about the people who introduced him to art and literature during his childhood. A conversation about moving beyond irony and distance to a level of sincerity that demands the full involvement of the "practical heart" -- and Gurganus wants to open all four chambers of that heart.
