Interview: American Tragedy Composer Tobias Picker

Listen to this story

Picker spent time researching the story in the Adiorondacks. He says Theodore Dreiser's classic novel is still contemporary, in part because of its attention to the tension between evangelical Christianity and American capitalism.
