Smith Henderson is the guest. His debut novel, Fourth of July Creek, is now available from Ecco.

Ron Charles of The Washington Post calls it

“The best book I’ve read so far this year...Henderson choreographs these parts so masterfully that the novel is never less than wholly engaging… All week I was looking for opportunities to slip back into these pages and follow the trials of this rural social worker.”

And The New York Times says

“First novels don’t come much more confidently written or fully imagined than this.”

Monologue topics: travel, family travel, parental aspirations, travel hell.
