Edmund de Waal: The White Road

Hosted by

Edmund de Waal takes us on a vast journey into the history and heart, skin and bones of porcelain. He is a potter and in discussing his book, The White Road: Journey into an Obsession (Farrar, Straus & Giroux), we move from China to Versailles, from Plymouth to Dachau. We wind up discovering the poetry latent in the art of Edmund de Waal.

Read an excerpt from The White Road.
