Joshua Kendall: America's Obsessives
In this Piccolo Spoleto Literary Festival lecture, Joshua Kendall discusses his new book, "America's Obsessives: The Compulsive Energy That Built a Nation". In it he examines the inner lives of six obsessive-compulsive personalities-Thomas Jefferson, H.J. Heinz, librarian Melvil Dewey, Charles Lindbergh, slugger Ted Williams, sexologist Alfred Kinsey, and cosmetics entrepreneur Estée Lauder. America's Obsessives is an anecdote-rich examination of the link between greatness and quirky behavior.
