The Rise and Fall of "The Killer"
At The State of Things at WUNC, the producers and host sit around a table every day and discuss the episodes they're working on for that day and for months ahead. One of my first weeks, the Executive Producer brought out an advance copy of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Rick Bragg's new book Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story and asked me if I wanted to do it. How could I refuse?
Rick is an iconic Southern author and his book on Jerry Lee Lewis did not fall below the expectations his previous work set. And when he came to the studios in Durham, he was also a pleasure to work with, a natural storyteller both in print and in word.
