The Waystone Inn is located in the backwater town of Newarre whose owner goes by the name of Kote. At first glance he seems like a quiet engaging man who fades into the background wherever customers are there. His friend and fellow worker Bast cares about the man and is sad and angry to see him rotting away in that place. Bast hopes for his master to break out of his lethargy occurs with the arrival of the Chronicler who knows Kote as Kvothe, called a hero by some and by others a cold killer, but never to his face. The Chronicler wants to write down his story.

From official release/information:

From publicity material: The Name of the Wind is the opening chapter in the ongoing tale of Kvothe (pronounced "quothe"). It is the story of a young man who becomes the most notorious magician his world has ever known. The Name of the Wind tells Kvothe's story, beginning with his childhood among a troupe of traveling players, moving through years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, and finally to his brazen bid to enter a legendary school of magic and learn the secrets hidden there.
