For more than 25 years, author Allan Gurganus has written about the mystical town of Falls, North Carolina.

In his newest book, "Local Souls," the town undergoes its most modern transformation (Liveright, 2013). Gurganus returns to Falls with three different novellas that explore love, community, and family. Host Frank Stasio talks with Allan Gurganus about "Local Souls."

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
