John Sayles on NPR

Author and film director John Sayles was on NPR, Kerri Miller, MidMorning show. Its always interesting to listen to a professional. Here is one person I wish I could sit and talk to for an hour or so.

He published his first novel at age 24, but he was unable to quit his day job. Now, years later, he has just published A Moment in the Sun, over 900 pages long.

In this interview, John talks about writing compared to film making, his book’s research and how he organized his characters and plot.
