After working in politics for fifteen years for Republicans like Bush, Dole, and Ashcroft, Will Leathem says he's happy now with what he calls a simpler life: running Prospero's Books, founding a publishing house whose writers tour the country doing readings, and writing poetry. Leathem spoke to KCUR's Laura Spencer earlier this week about his new book called Terra. Here's Leathem reading a brief excerpt from the poem Coming Clean.
