SouthBound: Author Kevin Wilson On Writing, On Family, And On Fire

Nov 13, 2019

When author Kevin Wilson talks about combustibles, he means exactly what he says. His new novel, “Nothing To See Here,” features a set of twins who, when they get agitated, literally catch on fire.

But the book is about way more than that. It’s about how families work, and what it means to love, and how to find a place that you can call home. In other words, Kevin Wilson writes about the needs and desires that smolder in the background of all our lives.
