Book Nook: The Killing Hills by Chris Offutt
Vick Mickunas' 2021 interview with Chris Offutt
Chris Offutt returned to the program after a long hiatus. Chris has never stopped writing books, I just had not been able to schedule another interview until now. The last time Chris appeared on the show it was to talk about a memoir. That was almost 20 years ago.
It was worth the wait. Chris just published a crime novel, "The Killing Hills," set in a locale that he knows very well, eastern Kentucky, where he grew up. This book is quite a page turner and I was pleased to learn during our conversation that Chris has decided to turn this into a series and he's already hard at work on the next installments.
