Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes NICK KOLAKOWSKI to the show. Nick Kolakowski's writing has appeared in Shotgun Honey, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, Thuglit, The North American Review, Spinetingler Magazine, Plots with Guns, and various anthologies. He lives and writes in New York City.
Nick's a little shy about dicussing his work but that's okay. When he's in the studio, I'm going to grill him like a hamburger. Stay tuned to hear about Nick's terrific crime fiction. Slaughterhouse Blues catches up with Bill and Fiona, the chattery and gun-happy anti-heroes of A Brutal Bunch of Heartbroken Saps, soon after they’ve escaped the Rockaway Mob, the criminal enterprise from which Bill “borrowed” several million dollars.
Holed up in Havana, Bill and Fiona know the Mob is coming for them—it’s just a question of time.

Forced on the run (again), Bill and Fiona will venture from the crumbling streets of Cuba to the steaming jungles of Nicaragua, and finally back to the mean streets of New York City.
