April 3, 2014

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.
