First, Salman Rushdie is on to talk about his latest book. It is called The Moor's Last Sigh and is the third installment in a cycle that began with Midnight Children and The Satanic Verses. He talks to Charlie about having a new book out, which has allowed him, and others, to put the controversy that surrounded The Satanic Verses behind him. Then, geologist, zoologist, paleontologist, scientist and essayist Stephen Jay Gould of Harvard University is on the show. He talks about his latest essay, Dinosaur in a Haystack, which is the seventh in a collection. It deals with topics as diverse as experiencing an eclipse to celebrating the glory of museums.
