The Washington Post – Review of The Blow-off by Jim Knipfel

This book is an absolute blast, particularly if you’re into gritty, satirical comic-thrillers. Check out my review, here.

I worked for Wayne Barrett at The Village Voice for a short while in grad school, and I couldn’t help but hear his voice whenever the protagonist, Henry Kalabander, spoke.

Author Jim Knipfel is quite a character as well.  Check out this 2007 interview with Knipfel on WNYC’s Leonard Lopate show.
