Scott Cheshire’s “High As the Horses’ Bridles”


Guest: Scott Cheshire

[From the Radio Times archive] In his debut novel High As the Horses’ Bridles, author SCOTT CHESHIRE explores the world of Josie Laudermilk, a Jehovah’s Witnesses member and child preacher who loses his faith as he becomes an adult. It’s a story of faith, fathers and sons, and the lore of the Apocalypse. In this hour of Radio Times, Cheshire talks to Marty about his new book and his own experience being raised in the Jehovah’s Witnesses church and his time as a youth preacher. She spoke with him last year.
