How do everyday struggles relate to the bigger tragedies of life, and what are their respective roles in fiction? We'll talk with Andre Dubus III, who addresses these issues in his new novel "The Garden of Last Days" (W. W. Norton, 2009). The Art&Seek segment visits the Dallas Museum of Art for a conversation with Irish artist Willie Doherty regarding his new solo exhibition "Requisite Distance".
