Nancy Pearl sits down with author Karl Marlantes to discuss his new novel, Finland's political history, reading, and his writing process. "Deep River" is a family saga about Finnish immigrants who settle in a Pacific Northwest logging town in the early 1900s. Marlantes talks about his inspiration for the story, including his own childhood in a small town in Oregon, stories from his Finnish grandmother, Norse mythology, and the Kalevala, the national epic of Finland.
