We have pieces today that feature writers who have accomplished much in their lives- overcoming formidable odds to achieve success. First an interview with the writer and Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel. He has written movingly about his experiences during the Holocaust, and describes what had been a happy childhood before life changed for his family irrevocably. Later in the hour you'll hear Wayson Choy, the Chinese Canadian writer with his novel the Jade Peony, which he calls a tale of survival.
