When the Irish writer Nuala O'Faolain was in her fifties she published her first book. It was a memoir called "Are You Somebody?" She came out to WYSO for an interview during her book tour. Her memoir is breathtakingly fabulous. And so was she. We had a lovely chat that day. I never expected to see her again. But fortunately I did see her again and we had more interviews.

Every writer fantasizes about writing a book that finds a massive readership. A book that sells and sells. A book that perches atop best seller lists for months or even years. For Bill Bryson that book was "A Walk in the Woods." This whimsical travel story which recounts Bryson's adventures hiking the Appalachian Trail with his buddy Steven Katz sold millions of copies. It made Bryson's career.
