Nathan Hill on 'Wellness'

If you’ve listened to Marginalia for a while, you’ll remember our conversation with Nathan Hill, for his debut novel, The Nix. In a review for NPR, Jason Sheehan predicted this about Hill: “He's gonna be famous. This is just the start.”

Now Nathan Hill has penned a sophomore novel titled Wellness, which follows Jack and Elizabeth from their early pre-internet meeting through years into their marriage, as the central tension in the novel seems to be the friction between stability and change: in a marriage, in a neighborhood, even in one's self. I recently spoke with Nathan Hill about this and so much more.


Wellness by Nathan Hill was published by Knopf.

Marginalia was produced at KMUW Wichita and is part of the NPR Podcast Network.
