With his debut novel, NEVERMORE, Harold Schechter created a most unlikely crime-solving duo when he teamed gothic master Edgar Allan Poe with "king of the wild frontier" Davy Crockett. In THE HUM BUG we again meet Poe, but this time he's paried with circusman P.T. Barnum --- as entertainingly ill-suited for the dark and drunken Poe as Crockett. Join writer Kate Ayers' discussion with Schechter to learn more about the conception of these odd couples, Poe's tendency toward excessive verbal flourishes, Caleb Carr and more.
