In this edition of Spark, recorded at the Miami Book Fair, Eric Bogosian recounts how he recently asked if wife if they could play with crayons.

He tells us how an idea for a screenplay he thought would take three months, eight or nine years later became his new non-fiction book, "Operation Nemesis: The Assassination Plot that Avenged the Armenian Genocide."

Spark: Jennine Capo Crucet's Imagination

"Two Miami girls reminisce about their chonga days, and other sources of inspiration." That's my summary of this interview with author Jennine Capó Crucet , who grew up in Hialeah and has written the books that put the city on the map in the literary world. Yes -- Hialeah and the literary world are not mutually exclusive. Jennine lives in Lincoln, Nebraska, now, where the sound of prairie grass reminds her of ocean waves and where she's learning to write about a place that's not specifically

Spark: Richard Blanco's Imagination

In this edition of Spark, the poet Richard Blanco talks about how crazy he was about Legos . He talks about getting called a "sissy" by his grandmother and why he thinks he got the same score on the math and verbal sections of the SAT. He talks about discovering poetry because of a girlfriend (before he came out), the first poem he fell in love with and how being an engineer makes him a better poet. He also talks about cat litter. And he tries to imagine what it might be like not to be Cuban

Spark: Salman Rushdie's Imagination

Author Salman Rushdie lived for a decade with a price on his head. His book “The Satanic Verses” prompted the Iranian Ayatollah to issue a fatwa -- a call for all Muslims to kill Rushdie. In this episode, I ask him to imagine his life and writing without such a threat. Listen to Rushdie discuss how it's impacted his writing, which is also shaped by urban life in his home cities of Mumbai (which he still calls Bombay), London and New York.
