Sara Paretsky discusses her novel, “Blacklist.” She begins by explaining that this is the eleventh book in her series that follows private investigator V.I. Warshawski. She talks about Chicago in the 1950s and the powerful mob scene. She discusses race relations and how they become a huge factor in this book. Paretsky talks about the Patriot Act and how the government is following people and keeping record of what they have checked out of the library. She describes the lives of policemen and how they have too may duties to perform at once. She ends the interview by talking about how her mother-in-law was an inspiration for one of the characters in the book.
