B. Robert Wilson is the great great grandson of John-Lyle Wilson, the main character featured in his novel, The Half Beneath.  A sort of literary troubadour, he spends his life following and writing the incredible Homeric tales buried in the land he loves.  Wilson is an alumnus of the University of Kentucky and recently reclaimed 90 acres of John-Lyle Wilson’s former farm just north of Lexington.  His literary focus surrounds what he calls “folk fiction” – stories about extraordinary Americans whose lives illuminate the beauty and complexity in American culture.
