Episode 309 — David Connerley Nahm

   

David Connerley Nahm is the guest. His debut novel, Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky, is available now from Two Dollar Radio.

Library Journal calls it

A powerful first novel, the kind that makes you want to stop people in the street to tell them about it.

And NPR says

Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky is far from a conventional novel…The pacing is perfect — while this isn’t a thriller, at least in any traditional sense of the word, it’s deeply suspenseful…it’s impossible to stop reading until you’ve gone through each beautiful line, a beauty that infuses the whole novel, even in its darkest moments.

Monologue topics: dinosaurs, weirdness, weather, vacation, lethargy, rest, impatience.
