Deconstructing the 'Model Home'

The author Eric Puchner is in the studio to talk about the real American dream and his novel for our times, "Model Home." We then head to a new blockbuster show which explores the radical and reactionary work of the impressionist Edgar Degas and his obsession with dance. Also on the programme, we venture into the secret side of Paris as the city opens its back doors for two nights only.
