North Carolina poet and novelist Jason Mott joined WCLK to talk about his first novel The Returned, in advance of his Sunday appearance at the Decatur Book Festival. Mott's book imagines a world in which people who have died return to life and what impact that has on the lives of those they originally left behind. It's earned critical praise and caught the eye of Brad Pitt's production company, which is creating a TV series based on the book that will be filmed in Georgia.
Mott talks about the challenges facing any writer trying to capture the public mind, as well as the paradoxical issues faced by the characters in The Returned.
Mott appears at noon on Sunday, September 2 at the Decatur Recreation Center Gym at 231 Sycamore St Decatur, GA 30030.
