Novelist Michael Cunningham on Homage

Studio 360

Kurt Andersen and author Michael Cunningham discover why so many artists make art about the work of other artists.

Cunningham won the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award in 1999 for his novel, The Hours. A film version of The Hours, featuring Julianne Moore, Nicole Kidman, and Meryl Streep, will be released this December.
