Harrison Scott Key’s debut memoir “The World’s Largest Man,” is the winner of the 2016 Thurber Prize for American Humor. His wry, dead-pan prose has drawn comparisons to David Sedaris and Mark Twain, yet Key’s voice is entirely original. In today’s episode, he tells Gregory Wolfe about his path from childhood cut-up to celebrated memoirist.
