TABLOID CITY: PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED
TABLOID CITY
BY PETE HAMILL

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In a stately West Village townhouse, a wealthy socialite and her secretary are murdered. In the 24 hours that follow, a flurry of activity circles around their shocking deaths: The head of one of the city's last tabloids stops the presses. A cop investigates the killing. A reporter chases the story. A disgraced hedge fund manager flees the country. An Iraq War vet seeks revenge. And an angry young extremist plots a major catastrophe.

The City is many things: a proving ground, a decadent playground, or a palimpsest of memories-- a historic metropolis eclipsed by modern times. As much a thriller as it is a gripping portrait of the city of today, TABLOID CITY is a new fiction classic from the writer who has captured it perfectly for decades.



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Pete Hamill is a novelist, journalist, editor, and screenwriter. He is the author of 20 previous books including the bestselling novels Forever and Snow in August and the bestselling memoir A Drinking Life. He lives in New York City.

I'm curious to see how the author weaves all these different threads together. I like that it seems to have a hard-boiled edge to it.

moonsword said...

I checked out Pete's site and I'm pleasantly surprised that at one time he aspired to be a comic book artist. I wish I could see some of his sketches!

This is similiar to what I have thought about cities, that each very different. The portrait of the city could even be like a song or a poem. I makes me think of Carl Sandburg's Chicago.
