Matthew J. Kirby’s “Icefall,” a coming-of-age tale filled with Norse mythology, garnered glowing reviews from Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly and novelist Ursula LeGuin when it was published last year. But being nominated for – and winning – the coveted Edgar Award caught the Utah author completely by surprise. On Thursday, Kirby joins us to talk about the honor and how his day-job fits in with his storytelling.
