Audio Podcast: William Kennedy

I got the chance to talk with novelist William Kennedy today, as part of the Writers At Cornell Podcast Series. Kennedy is the author of many books, most of them (including the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Ironweed) about the history of organized crime in his native Albany, New York. We discussed the difference between screenwriting and novel writing, the morality of the criminal mind, the acting talent of Meryl Streep, and journalism as a springboard to fiction.
