Walter Kirn’s memoir on deception, privilege, and murder


    Guest: Walter Kirn

    [From the Radio Times archive] 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 spoke with Marty about how he was duped by this imposter in April.
