New Hope for the Well-Read: Goffard

Journalism is not dead. Edgar best first novel finalist a year or so back, Christopher Goffard (SNITCH JACKET) wrote an amazing piece in the LA Times recently. The Week Magazine picked it up. I had the pleasure of meeting him in NYC and what a funny guy and such a brilliant journalist. If there were any gutsy justice in the world either SNITCH JACKET or Craig MacDonald' HEAD GAMES should've won. Read the piece here.
