Writer's Voice

Writer’s Voice spends the hour with Jonathan Eig talk­ing about his acclaimed new biog­ra­phy, KING: A Life. It’s a cap­ti­vat­ing por­trait of the renowned civ­il rights leader, unveil­ing new mate­r­i­al and pro­vid­ing an inti­mate perspective.

He suf­fered tremen­dous­ly from doubt. And he suf­fered ter­ri­bly from the effects of the FBI assault on him. He kept doing his work. He kept march­ing for­ward. He kept going more and more bold­ly into the breach. But it had an impact. He was hos­pi­tal­ized sev­er­al times, maybe, fair to say, many times for exhaus­tion, for just suc­cumb­ing to the stress of what he was doing. So that kind of courage in the face of doubt, to me, makes him even more hero­ic.” — Jonathan Eig
