Bestselling author Erik Larson discusses two of his nonfiction works. The Devil in the White City juxtaposes the 1893 Chicago Columbian Exposition and the nation's first serial killing, while Thunderstruck deals with the invention of radio and England's second-most famous murder.  In this interview with New Letters' Dennis Conrow, Larson reveals how he uses historical facts to create a novelistic approach to writing nonfiction.
