Segment 1: The Slow Road Anais Mitchell spent more than a decade creating her multi-Tony Award-winning musical "Hadestown." So all-encompassing was her task that it took an intervention by her husband for her to declare it complete.

With perspective gained by moving to the United States, his youth eventually became the basis for a Booker Prize-winning, best-selling novel.
