Posted By dpacheco On October 9, 2008 @ 7:45 am In Science, Nature & Environment | No Comments

Author Diane Wilson appeared on WUNC’s The State of Things this morning to discuss her new book, and what it was like to grow up in a holy bubble of Fundamentalism in Seadrift, Texas.

Author Diane Wilson [1] joins host Frank Stasio to discuss her newest book, “Holy Roller: Growing Up in the Church of Knock Down, Drag Out; or, How I Quit Loving a Blue-Eyed Jesus” (Chelsea Green Publishing/2008). In it, Wilson examines the Pentecostal church through the eyes of her 10-year-old self, growing up in 1950s Texas. The childhood memoir is the prequel to her first novel, “An Unreasonable Woman [2],” and sheds light on the extremism and mysticism of the faith.
