Bill welcomes debut novelist Stephen Markley to the show. Stephen is the author of the novel Ohio. He's also the author of memoir Publish This Book and the tavelogue Tales of Iceland. He is a graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop and his essays and short fiction can be found scattered across the internet. Ohio is a lyrical and emotional novel set in an archetypal small town in northeastern Ohio—a region ravaged by the Great Recession, an opioid crisis, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—depicting one feverish, fateful summer night in 2013 when four former classmates converge on their hometown, each with a mission, all haunted by the ghosts of their shared histories. It's ambition, incredibly well-reviewed, and we've got its author on the show! Don't miss it.
