NPR recently interviewed three nonfiction authors who have either released a recent work or whose past work touches on a timely topic.

Historian Hampton Sides will release his latest work, The Wide Wide Sea: Imperial Ambition, First Contact And The Fateful Final Voyage Of Captain James Cook, next Tuesday.

He gave Fresh Air's Dave Davies a preview of the situation and circumstances that the British explorer found himself in, back in 1776.

Author Patric Gagne's memoir, Sociopath, came out this past week; she spoke with Morning Edition's Michel Martin about what the term truly means and how she herself has processed it throughout her life.

And finally, David Baron revisits his 2017 book, American Eclipse: A Nation's Epic Race to Catch the Shadow of the Moon and Win the Glory of the World, with Life Kit in the leadup to April 8's total solar eclipse.
