Novelist on Music

Novelist Nick Hornby's new book, Songbook, contains a collection of essays about Hornby's favorite pop tunes. It includes a meditation on a reggae version of "Puff the Magic Dragon." The unusual song is a favorite of Hornby's autistic son, and it teaches him something about his passion for music. Hear Hornby and NPR's Renee Montagne.
