Host Terri Lynn Coop is pleased to serve up award-winning novelist Lou Berney on The Blue Plate Special.

In introduction . . . 

I'm Lou Berney, author of the forthcoming NOVEMBER ROAD, a thriller and love story set against the backdrop of the JFK assassination. Don Winslow calls it "a staggeringly brilliant book and a flat-out terrific read." And yes, since you're wondering, I do plan to deliver a roller bag full of unmarked hundred-dollar bills to his house.

I'm also the author of three other novels, one of which, THE LONG AND FARAWAY GONE, won the Edgar, Anthony, Barry, Macavity, ALA, and Oklahoma Book awards. I discovered that there are a lot of different ways to nervously stammer and stumble through an acceptance speech.

Between the ages of 12 and 19 I was fired from approximately nine different jobs, including newspaper delivery boy (dereliction of duty), apartment complex maintenance man (general incompetence), and photo darkroom attendant (dereliction of duty, general incompetence, inappropriate use of darkroom). Since the age of 19, I have not been fired from a job.

And it's a good thing for us he was . . .
