Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle | Episode 050 Infinite Gestation

    • Books

Infinite Gestation goes contemporary in this episode featuring John Darnielle's debut novel, Wolf in White Van, nominated for the National Book Award in 2014. Though many know Darnielle as singer-songwriter and member of The Mountain Goats, he is making a well received foray into fiction. His first novel is in no way a vanity project and despite some flaws, stands as a fine specimen of a freshman novel.

His sophomore effort Universal Harvester was released in February of this year.
