The Murmur Podcast Talks Joe Hill’s Horns

hornsOn episode 24 of the Murmur podcast, I was invited to chat with Paul Montgomery and Dave Accampo about Horns. In his sophomore novel, Joe Hill writes about Ig Parrish, a guy with a dark and complicated past who wakes one morning to find horns growing from his forehead – as well as the ability to read people’s thoughts.

Here’s Murmur.com’s description of our discussion;

Paul Montgomery sits down with Murmur.com contributors Josh Christie and David Accampo to discuss Horns, the latest novel from Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box, Locke&Key). After a long night of dirty deeds, Ig Perrish wakes up to find a pair of stubby horns growing out of his temples. It’s downright unsettling. Then come the confessions. People in town start sharing their deepest and darkest secrets with him, asking permission to do their damnedest. Let’s not even start on what the snakes are doing. At the heart of it all is a mystery, a tale of lost love and rotten friendships. And not everybody’s gonna dig it. Find out how it all shakes out.

You can listen to the discussion right on the podcast post, or subscribe to the podcast through iTunes or by RSS.

If you enjoy our discussion of Horns, you can check out our chats about David Grann’s Lost City of Z, Lev Grossman’s The Magicians and Josh Bazzel’s Beat the Reaper on episodes 15, 18 and 21 of the podcast. You can also join in our discussion of our next book, Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, if you’re so inclined.
