VLH is excited to chat with Russ Lippitt, author of coming-of-age Greaser novel "The Lion's Share"!

"Russ Lippitt hails from the lower class projects of New Jersey’s finest. Raised by a drug-dealing Hell’s Angel biker he called Dad and a pole-dancing junkie, his future was almost written in stone. Through writing, Russ had found his escape from reality by creating a world worse than his own. In his teen years, he had often bumped head’s with the law; so, naturally, inspired by Punk Rock and Anarchist views, he set out to become a rule-breaking writer, dedicating himself to learning the rules just to deconstruct them more fully and artistically.

To this end, he shipped himself off to The Academy of Arts College to polish his writing talent. In the vein of anti-hero writer’s such as Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, and Frank Miller, Russ Lippitt’s writing is enveloped in chaos and mayhem that incorporates his love for the rebellious fifties. In every bit of prose, Russ Lippitt’s objective is to get his readers to cheer for the villain and acknowledge that ‘The grass is not always greener on the other side if you burn it down.’ Because, for this author, anarchy is not just another word to be thrown around and dismissed as useless rhetoric, it’s a way of life."
