Mikhail Baryshnikov talks about playing the troubled genius and revolutionary choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky and having an awkward dinner with Donald Trump. Burkhard Bilger explores the repressed trauma of Germans who were children during World War II. The prolific novelist T.C. Boyle talks about a favorite new band, his favorite web videos, and his favorite nature writer. And a Yemeni man who lost everything in his country's civil war builds a place of beauty and respite in a refugee camp.
