008 - Nathan Hill

May 4, 2018

My guest this episode is Nathan Hill. He’s a writer, and author of the 2016 bestselling novel The Nix. He’s moved to Naples in 2006 from New York City to take a job as a professor at FGCU, did that until 2012, moved away for a couple of years, then got his book deal so moved back to Naples to focus on his writing. 

Nathan grew up all over the Midwest, where his grandparents had worked as farmers. His family moved constantly when he was growing up as his father worked his way up through management at Kmart. When he agreed to do this show it delighted me because I couldn’t wait to see how a novelist (a literal professional teller of stories!) would respond to this "3 Songs Concept".
