In an encore presentation, DIALOGUE host Marcia Franklin talks with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo.

Franklin focuses her interview on Russo's 2012 book, Elsewhere: A Memoir, the story of his complicated relationship with his mother and her influence on his personal life and writing.

The two also discuss the themes of his novels, what it's like to write screenplays, and a special cause of his, promoting hospice care and an understanding of end-of-life issues.
