Bruce Holsinger, a medieval scholar at UVA, is the author of "A Burnable Book." (Daniel Addison)

Bruce Holsinger is a professor in the English Department of the University of Virginia who specializes in the medieval period.

So when he decided to write a novel, he set it during the reign of Richard the Second, with Geoffrey Chaucer as one of his main characters.

The result, "A Burnable Book, " was released in paperback this month.

We revisit the conversation Here & Now's Robin Young had with Holsinger.
