Kurt Andersen and writer Paul Theroux look at artistic rivalries and how competition works its way through our culture.
Paul Theroux has written fiction and nonfiction for more than 35 years. His books on Patagonia, Oceania, and Hong Kong have made him the most acclaimed travel writer of our time. Dark Star Safari, published in March, chronicles a rail journey the entire length of Africa. He lives in Cape Cod and Hawaii, where he sells his own brand of honey.
