Graphic Novel Tells Fascinating Tale of Robber, Writer, Father and Prison Confidant

Morning Shift talks to the author of a new graphic novel about a blind Chicagoan who lived a life of crime in his youth but transformed into a voracious writer and reader later in life. Who helped him make that turn? One of the most notorious criminals of the last century. We talk to the author of The Hunting Accident: A True Story of Crime and Poetry and the son of the man at the center of the story.
