Kids These Days

Drew Perry's new book Kids These Days looks at the anxieties of parenthood.

When North Carolina author Drew Perry and his wife were having conversations about having children, he was utterly terrified. 

He channeled that fear into a new novel about a couple expecting their first child and their unexpected relationship with a drug operation in Florida. Host Frank Stasio talks with Perry about his fears about parenting and his book, "Kids These Days," (Algonquin Books, 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.
