Host Jennifer Kemp interviews Portland writer Kevin Desinger about his first novel The Descent of Man.
The main character of Kevin Desinger's novel is an average guy who experiences a sequence of events that lead to a firestorm consuming his house and family. Readers of this book are prompted to ponder the question of how they would respond were their own normal lives to take such unexpected turns.
Kevin Desinger graduated from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop before moving to Portland where he wrote for the Willamette Week, the Oregonian and a number of regional publications. An earlier short story appeared in The Missouri Review.
