PodTech:Michael Ondaatje

Michael Ondaatje is best known for his novel, The English Patient. He has a new book out called Divisadero. I spoke with him on the San Francisco street that gives the book its name, where he told me why it was the best title for a book set primarily in Petaluma and southern France.
