Prairie Public News: American Gospel

Radically personal and quintessentially American, an intimate drama at the heart of an apocalyptic vision

The parent child relationship is never easy to navigate. It’s even more complicated when religious and political views differ. American Gospel is the latest book from author and English professor Lin Enger. He explores a complex father son relationship between Enoch and Peter Bywater, after Enoch publicly predicts the apocalypse. ~~~ Commentary on political advertising from Mark Trahant. ~~~ Ashley Thornberg returns from a road trip to Minot where she appeared on the Good Talk podcast. Along the way she gathered several interviews, and today we share her conversation with Val Stadick of Main Street Books.
