On today's show, Macaulay Culkin makes his literary debut with Junior—it's part memoir, part novel. But first, we'll learn about the history and culture of Iranian Jews for the Purim holiday. Plus, we'll talk to two leading jazz musicians: harmonica player Toots Thielemans, and percussionist Paul Motian. And we'll hear about a new novel about a young Hawaiian woman’s family ghosts.
