Interview with J.D. Wilkes

Great news! We have signed a new novel called The Vine That Ate the South—by debut novelist J.D. Wilkes, the charismatic frontman of Th' Legendary Shack Shackers, and accomplished harmonica and banjo player, who Jello Biafra calls “the last great Rock and Roll frontman”—a mesmerizing fantasia that incorporates vampire cults, exorcisms, and the Bell Witch of Tennessee, as two friends embark on a surreal, Homeric voyage that strikes at the very heart of American mythology.
