What would drive you to steal? Hunger? Greed? For John Charles Gilkey, it’s a sort of love that led him to his crimes. Gilkey is obsessed with books and stole them to satisfy his lust. The journalist Allison Hoover Bartlett has just published a book about Gilkey, and about Utah’s own self-described "bibliodick" Ken Sanders, who hunted the thief plaguing his trade. Bartlett joins Doug to talk about the romance of books and the lengths some will go to possess them.
