Just how did Cal Cunningham -- a twenty-five-year-old bookstore stockboy who is new to Manhattan and who has never written anything -- publish a bestselling novel that sells to the movies for a million dollars?

A mysterious roommate, a timely bike accident, and the rapacious literary agent Blackie Yaeger all play a role in Cal's success.

Deception, blackmail, and murder all play a role in his desperate bid to hold on to it.

And About the Author is his first-person account of how he performed this remarkable feat.

Editorial Reviews

"WARNING: Don't start reading this superbly crafted thriller unless you are 100% able to tear yourself away from a hypnotic narrative that demands [and deserves] to be devoured at a single sitting." (Publishing News, UK)
