Richard Rodriguez discusses "Darling: A Spiritual Autobiography"

Listen to this story
Essayist Richard Rodriguez is most widely known as a commentator on the PBS NewsHour. He is the author Hunger of Memory, Brown, Days of Obligation, and the brand new Darling: A Spiritual Autobiography.

In Darling, he explores the three religions that sprung from Abraham in a desert culture that is austere, dangerous, and prone to spiritual visions. Rodriguez writes this memoir in part as as a response to Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris and others who formed the "New Atheism." He talks about the book with Chris Robinson of the Readers & Writers Book Club.
