Here And There with Dave Marash

High school is for young adults…people transitioning out of the protected life of pre-adolescence into the so-called real world, a place of adult-like issues of personal rivalry, and sexual identity.  These complexities define the content of the book market called “young adult.”  John Feinstein is among its most successful writers, specializing in books about high school sports, a genre that has changed as dramatically as the lives of today’s mid-teenagers.  John talks about his books and the American literary tradition they are part of.
