Episode 75: interview with author Ed Davis

Ed Davis is the WV-native author of the novels I Was So Much Older Then  and  The Measure of EverythingHis third novel, The Psalms of Israel Jones was recently published by WV University Press.  It tells the story of a legendary hard-living, hard-lovin', hard-drinkin', and hard-druggin' rockstar who, in his later years, develops something of a cult following.  Literally.  His son Thom, a conservative minister with some possible moral issues of his own, is called on to the tour by a mysterious phone call and finds himself once again thrust into his estranged father's chaotic world of tour busses, dive-bar shows, and... snake-handlers?  

In this episode, host Eric Fritzius sits down with Davis for an interview about the novel, as recorded during the Lewisburg Literary Festival on August 8, 2015.
