Best Of: 17 Brushes With Death / Jordan Klepper Of 'The Opposition'

Maggie O'Farrell has survived some terrifying episodes. Her new memoir, 'I Am, I Am, I Am,' details 17 near-death experiences, and what she's learned from them. Also, to mark Black History Month, Penguin Press is reprinting six books from the Harlem Renaissance. Maureen Corrigan has an appreciation. Comic Jordan Klepper got his big break as a comedian when he was hired to be a correspondent on 'The Daily Show' with Jon Stewart. Now he hosts his own show on Comedy Central called 'The Opposition.' Klepper spoke with Terry Gross about how he modeled his character after right-wing conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones.
