Book Nook: Broken, by Don Winslow


When it comes to fiction Don Winslow can do it all. He has written some of my favorite novels. "Broken," his new collection of novellas, is a delightful departure from some of his more massive work of recent years.

This is probably my favorite interview, so far, that I have done with Don. We got off on some really fun tangents. Don talked about literary pilgrimages that he has made. And we spun into a really interesting thread about how the western novels of yesteryear have spawned the thriving crime fiction genre of our present day.

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