Marginalia: Luke Geddes On His Time In Wichita, And The Novel That Followed
Luke Geddes has written a novel set in Wichita. Since KMUW is based in Wichita, that’s an oddity worth pointing out.
The novel, Heart of Junk, is about a group of antique mall booth owners and the world of collectibles—a world Geddes discovered when he spent a couple years in Wichita earning an MFA from Wichita State University. Heart of Junk is filled with humor, sadness, and cynicism. I wondered if Geddes’s time in Wichita was filled with the same.
Here’s our conversation.
Heart of Junk by Luke Geddes is published by Simon & Schuster.
