The Irish writer reads from his new novel, Days Without End, and discusses the pleasures and pitfalls of writing historical fiction. He traces adventure in America from the Civil War era to his time hitchhiking across the country in the 1970s, and looks hopefully toward the future for outsiders in the States.
