by Jeff Rutherford on July 23, 2013

The 122nd episode of the Reading & Writing podcast features an interview with James Lee Burke, New York Times bestselling writer of the Dave Robicheaux novels. LIGHT OF THE WORLD, the 20th Robicheaux novel, was published today.

“A powerful meditation on the nature—and smell—of evil . . . But even as the stomach roils, the fingers keep turning the pages because the much-honored Burke (two Edgars, a Guggenheim Fellowship) is a master storyteller.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

In 1988 James Lee Burke Burke was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship for Creative Arts in Fiction. Two of Burke’s novels – BLACK CHERRY BLUES and CIMARRON ROSE – have won the Edgar Allan Poe award for Best Novel of the Year.
