When he was only five years old, Dale Wasserman's folks died and his family disintegrated. At 11 he ran away from his foster home, and by 14 he was riding the rails, a real-life hobo of the 1930's. Between then and now he's become a successful New York playwright and hangs out with people like Neil Simon. He'll fill in the details on today's show.
