Friday, we're rebroadcasting one of our conversations with the late writer and journalist Charles Bowden. Bowden's body of work includes his observations about the American psyche, essays on the natural world, and gritty stories about drug violence and other crimes. Many of these stories come from his home in the desert southwest. Bowden died last week at the age of 69. He was regarded as one of the most powerful writers of our time. (Rebroadcast)
Charles Bowden wrote many books, including El Sicario, Murder City, Down by the River, A Shadow in the City and Blood Orchid. He died Saturday, August 30, 2014 at his home in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
