The Book That's Left The Critics Wonderstruck

"The Tragedy of Arthur" by Arthur Phillips is a clever novel about a "lost" Shakespeare play. The problem is what's true and what's a con? The Arthur, er author, is in the studio. Also on the show: women in Saudi Arabia can't drive, vote or work with men but we meet the woman who has become the country's first filmmaker to direct a film in her homeland. Plus, life is sweet for Sixto Rodriguez as the Sugar Man returns to the stage.
