Guest: Walter Kirn
Writer WALTER KIRN’s new book, Blood Will Out, is a chilling memoir of an incredible deception by a psychopath. The true crime story chronicles Kirn’s 15-year friendship with a man he knew as Clark Rockefeller, but who he later discovered was Christian Gerhartsreiter, a German immigrant who committed kidnapping, fraud, spousal abuse, and murder. Walter Kirn is the author of a number of books, including the novels Up in the Air and Thumbsucker. He comes in to talk to Marty about how he was duped by this imposter.
