Listen in to WYPR 88.1 FM this Friday, June 7th, at 1 pm. Dan Rodricks and I will talk about my new book, Nightmare Alley, and all things noir.
If you’re in Baltimore this weekend, come on out to the Cold Spring Jazz Quartet’s special event! Here are details.
Cold Spring Jazz Quartet presents “Monk’s Moods: A Tribute to Thelonious Monk.”
CSJQ has carved out a reputation for giving classic jazz a contemporary sheen. With this all-Monk show they do it again. Offering a range of tempos in tunes from the familiar to the obscure, the band pays homage to the legendary composer/pianist’s infectious joy and wit. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event!
Here’s the cover of my forthcoming book. The photo is from the movie Out of the Past, and the actress is Jane Greer, who plays the femme fatale Kathie Moffat. The shadows are those of two men, fighting, one of them soon to be shot.
The book is due out in January.
