Kate Sullivan interviews the award-winning author of "The Known World" on the WordSmitten "About the Books" broadcast. Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize, Jones reveals his most touching moments during his MFA studies, talks about his favorite collectibles, and the murder of his sister. This remarkable interview is a portrait of a talented and reclusive author who lives in Washington, DC, and delays purchasing furniture, but who states, "It would be nice to have a chair."
