See author Erik Larson in conversation with Krys Boyd of KERA.
Erik Larson, master of narrative nonfiction, delivers The Splendid and the Vile, a compelling portrait of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz. Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people “the art of being fearless.” Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports, Larson provides a new lens on London’s darkest year, transporting readers to a time of true leadership, when—in the face when of unrelenting horror—Churchill’s eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together. Larson’s bestselling books include The Devil in The White City and In the Garden of Beasts.
