John Banville (as Benjamin Black): Christine Falls

Hosted by

Booker Prize-winning novelist John Banville has written Christine Falls (Holt), the first in a series of thrillers, and he's even taken on an alias or, at least, a nom de plume. He talks about the difference between being a craftsman and being an artist--and the pleasure he feels at taking a vacation from art is palpable.
