This week in Studio 360, Kurt Andersen talks with Jamaica Kincaid, whose new novel resembles her life in almost every particular — but please, it’s not all about her. And in China, an architectural gem rises while a bootleg copy, copied from the plans, rises 1000 miles away. And Dwight Yoakam, who traveled a couple of thousand miles from Appalachia to Los Angeles but never forgot his roots, plays a live set. Yoakam’s first album of new songs in seven years is called 3 Pears.
