Michael Scott Moore’s memoir of the 2.5 years he spent as a captive of Somali pirates is now on sale.

If you just need a taste of The Desert and the Sea, though, you can listen to Moore’s interview on All Things Considered below, or read his account of teaching yoga to his captors on Literary Hub here.

Moore's work has been published in such places as The Atlantic, Der Spiegel, Pacific Standard, Bloomberg Businessweek, and the L.A. Review of Books.

Sweetness and Blood, his travel book about the spread of surfing to odd corners of the world, was named a book of the year by The Economist in 2010.
