Slate's Audio Book Club: The Night of the Gun, by David Carr

Slate's Audio Book Club. Meghan O'Rourke, Katie Roiphe, and Troy Patterson discuss New York Times columnist David Carr's The Night of the Gun, a memoir in which he uses his journalistic skills to dig up the details he's forgotten about his earlier life as a drug addict. We recommend, but don't insist, that you read the book before listening to this audio program. The next book we'll be discussing is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
