N.M Kelby stops by the studio to talk about her newest book, the yummy White Truffles in Winter, a novel about the great French chef Auguste Escoffier. It’s an Indie NEXT pick and BookPage’s Top Fiction Pick for November.
Also this week, we chat with Elizabeth Searle, Alan Davis and Kevin Carollo, who have all written about terrorism or tragedy and its aftermath. They recently toured to discuss the common elements in their writing.
Elizabeth Searle is the author of the novel Girl Held in Home as well as A Four-Sided Bed, which was nominated for an American Library Association Book Award.
Alan Davis is the author of the short story collection So Bravely Vegetative. He teaches in the MFA programs at Fairfield University and Minnesota State University, Moorhead. His two previous short story collections both won the MVP Competition. He has also won two Fulbrights, a Loft-McKnight Award, and a Minnesota State Arts Board Fellowship.
Kevin Carollo also teaches at MSU, Moorhead. He has published poems in Conduit, Court Green, Cranky, Lungfull!, Ellipsis, and elsewhere.
