Join us for Dave’s take on everything from escorting his daughter to see a Justin Bieber concert to his wife’s role in the popularity of the book “The Kite Runner.” Plus, he dispels some myths surrounding the perceived glamour of writing for a living. He even lets us in on his method of what he calls “writing lies” for his popular books. It’s a candid, comedic conversation with one of the most entertaining authors we’ve ever interviewed.
