The author William Conescu struggled with double vision before having surgery to fix the disorder.

The idea of double vision lingered with him and his new novel Kara Was Here (Soft Skull Press/ 2013), features a character who sees double, both literally and metaphorically.  The character grapples with the conflict between the life he chose and the life he gave up.  Host Frank Stasio speaks to William Conescu about the novel.

Shawn Wen joined the staff of The State of Things in March 2012 and served as associate producer until February 2014.
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.
