Book Nook: Never by Ken Follett


Vick Mickunas interviews author Ken Follett.

Ken Follett is one of the best-selling authors of the past 50 years. He
began his career writing spy novels. Then he shifted into writing
historical fiction. Follett has over 178 million books in print and he's
not showing any signs of slowing down. This man loves to write. To tell
stories. To entertain. To make us turn the pages. I had Ken on the show
last year for his previous book and considered that to be a real coup.
So I was delighted when I was offered another chance to talk to him
about his latest effort, "Never."

This book marks a return to the genre that marked the beginning of his
career, the espionage novel. This story is set in the present day and it
is action-packed as the USA and China are lurching toward a possible nuclear war.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library, Clark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
