On this day in 1871, writer Stephen Crane was born.
Most of us know him as the author of The Red Badge of Courage; a new biography of him, though, encourages us to expand our view — and admiration — of him.
Burning Boy came out last week, just in time to celebrate the 150th anniversary of its subject’s birth.
Its author, Paul Auster, hopped on NPR to share some of the key points from that 800-page biography with bookworms who might not know why Crane would warrant such an in-depth exploration.
You can read Auster's interview about Burning Boy on NPR’s website or listen to the segment below.
