In today’s episode, we meet Kevin Winchester, winner of the 2013 Thomas Wolfe Fiction Prize, and author of the novel, “Sunflower Dog,” an exploration of the many layers of life in a small, North Carolina town as its residents try to find their place in the neo-gothic South.

New York Times best-selling author Ron Rash, compares “Sunflower Dog” to John Kennedy Toole’s masterpiece, “A Confederacy of Dunces,” saying it is “a delightful novel by one of North Carolina’s best writers.”

If you’re a fan of Clyde Edgerton, Carl Hiassen, Celia Rivenbank, Tim Dorsey, or any of the many other southern humor writers, you’ll enjoy this book.

We start the show at a good place, the beginning, with Kevin reading from the opening chapter, “Take the Next Left to Salvation.”
