Floating Along with Lee Smith's 'Last Girls'

Novelist Lee Smith says she has based her new work of fiction, The Last Girls, on a personal experience: a 1966 boating adventure along the mighty Mississippi River. Smith says it's a story about "aging, among other things." Smith talks with NPR's Bob Edwards.
