Owen King is the guest. His new novel, Double Feature, is now available from Scribner.
Karen Russell raves
“What a kinetic, joyful, gonzo ride—Double Feature made me laugh so loudly on a plane that I had to describe the plot of Sam's Spruce Moose of a debut film (it stars a satyr) to my seatmate by way of explanation. Booth and Sam are an unforgettable Oedipal duo. A book that delivers walloping pleasures to its lucky readers.”
And Larry McMurtry says
“Double Feature is a beautiful, wrenching beginning, and Owen King is a young writer of immense promise.”
