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 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,” and sheds light on the extremism and mysticism of the faith.
