Nick White is a novelist and short story writer who teaches in Ohio State University’s creative writing program.

He grew up in a small Mississippi town called Possumneck, and that setting informs much of his work.

Nick’s debut novel How to Survive a Summer came out in 2017 and a collection of stories titled Sweet and Low came out the following year.

The small joys mentioned in this episode include growing up in a small town, The Golden Girls, reading novels slowly, soap opera cliffhangers, and Tina Turner's 1988 concert in Rio.
