Tod Goldberg is the guest. His new novel Gangsterland is now available from Counterpoint Press.

Kirkus, in a starred review, says

Clearly influenced by the great Elmore Leonard, Goldberg puts his own dry comic spin on the material…Clever plotting, a colorful cast of characters, and priceless situations make this comedic crime novel an instant classic.

And Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, says

Goldberg injects Talmudic wisdom and a hint of Springsteen into the workings of organized crime and FBI investigative techniques and makes it all work splendidly.

Monologue topics: bothersome phrases, I wish there was something I could do.
