Episode 239 — James Scott


James Scott is the guest. His debut novel, The Kept, is available from Harper.

Kirkus, in a starred review, says

Scott is both compassionate moralist and master storyteller in this outstanding debut.

And Tom Perrotta says

The Kept starts out as a straightforward revenge narrative, then slowly deepens into something much more mysterious and compelling. James Scott has written a riveting and memorable debut novel.
