Here’s an article written a few weeks ago in the Durham Herald-Sun about Will’s novel Incorporation.
Willimon’s novel, “Incorporation” (Cascade Books) — his first fiction after selling a million books on church, ministry and religion – is set in a large, liberal, Midwestern church.
In “Incorporation,” most of the characters have serious flaws, including clergy. There is conflict all around, between pastors and music ministers and congregants, and even a physical fight between unscrupulous staff. There’s death and gossip and plenty of humor. Willimon describes the novel as about the “underbelly of this institution filled with really human people.” It’s also about the grace of God, he said, as these same people are leading a church. Willimon said he enjoyed writing the novel, which is not based on anyone he knows.
