I am amazed and honored to report that TOXICITY was among the books cited by the Chicago Tribune in their list of favorite 2011 Chicago authors’ books!
Some of my other favorite authors were also listed, including Laura Caldwell, Dave Heinzmann, Jamie Freveletti, Marcus Sakey, all of whom are members of the OUTFIT, the blog we started five years ago. Luis Alberto Urrea, Michael Harvey, Keir Graff, and Melanie Benjamin, also some fine authors and friends, were on the list as well.
Chicago, the Second City? Bah, humbug!
