“The story that we all live [is] the cycle of creation and destruction, of control and letting go, of picking up the pieces and making something new.”
— Julie Burstein.
In 2000, Julie Burstein, created Public Radio International’s show Studio 360 to explore pop culture and the arts. Hosted by novelist Kurt Andersen and produced at WNYC, the show is a guide to what’s interesting now—and asks deep questions about the drive behind creative work. Now, Burstein has written Spark: How Creativity Works filled with stories about artists, writers and musicians (like Chuck Close, Isabell Allende, Patti Lupone).
