@ Busboys and Poets 14th & V: David Black - Fast Shuffle

Tuesday, November 24, 2015 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

For his third work of fiction, Black, award-winning author of Murder at the Met and Like Father, as well as a writer/producer of TV shows including CSI:Miami and Law and Order, has created a modern version of Don Quixote, the  man who was so enchanted with tales of knights that he thought he was one. Black’s Quixote is Harry, who sells cars for a living but acts like he’s a 1940s private eye. Harry drives a Packard, calls his girlfriend Friday—but when he claims to have discovered a cache of bank documents indicating foul play involving a woman who has disappeared, who can say whether he’s on to a real crime or just suffering a more severe bout of partial complex seizure disorder.

Black will be in conversation with James Grady, author of Six Days of the Condor and Last Days of the Condor.
