The Los Angeles Times columnist talked about how a series of columns on a homeless, mentally ill musician he passed on the streets each day became a moving book, "The Soloist." The book is being published in eight countries and a Dreamworks movie based on the book is scheduled to be released early next year. See a trailer for The Soloist!
