Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of people who can?t wait for the climactic battle between William Kent Krueger?s Windigo and Michael Chabon?s Golem ? in the NEW new media capital of the world? St. Petersburg, Florida!
A good day in my business is one in which I learn that a favorite author has released a new book. That means good reading ahead and, more than likely, a good interview in my immediate future.
Today is one of those days, as one of the Great Lakes? favorite sons of modern literature, William Kent Krueger, is joining me to talk about his latest Cork O?Connor mystery, Windigo Island.
You can LISTEN to this interview with novelist WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER, author of WINDIGO ISLAND and ORDINARY GRACE by clicking the audio player above!
As always, the gentle writing style of Krueger belies a dirty underbelly of statutory misdeeds?and this is one of his darkest tales yet: teen sex trafficking of Native American girls.
It?s a story that is often hard to read for the unfolding brutality of its crimes by sex traffickers, but while the narrative is never as sexually graphic as it might have been in a lesser author?s hands, Krueger is never less than commanding in his point of view and its effectiveness.
This will be viewed as a hard right turn in content for readers of his last book, the non-Cork O?Connor story Ordinary Grace, which was actually an extraordinary piece of grace.
And no, William Kent Krueger will not be receiving a ?Man of the Year? commendation from the Duluth Chamber of Commerce for Windigo Island. In fact, I suspect he may want to go in disguise next time he pays a visit to that lakefront city.
This, by the way, is Krueger?s third visit to Mr. Media and I hope there are many more ahead of us.
