Fannie Hurst discusses her autobiography "Anatomy of Me." She talks about the kinds of questions audiences ask about her book - and that they are always unexpected. She also discusses her husband. And tells many other little stories.

Next, Vladimir Nabokov reads a poem and speaks about his work, particularly Lolita.

Finally, Agnes DeMille speaks about her books "In Addition to All This" and "Promenade Home."
