About EJ Knapp

EJ Knapp was born during a thunderstorm in Detroit, Michigan, several years before the Motor City discovered fins. Raised in a working-class, blue-collar neighborhood, he morphed into the stereotypical hoodlum a teenager growing up on the west side of Detroit was expected to be. Dropping out of high school at sixteen, he hit the road in his ‘60 Chevy and has, in one way or another, been rolling down that road ever since.

Review by: Scott Skipper on Sep. 06, 2011 : star star star star
Fact, fiction, humor, nonsense, curiosity, whimsy and scandal in all the right proportion is what you get from The Secrets of the Golden Gate. Knapp has compiled years of serious research and included the craziness he unearthed along the way. An excellent read—you'll be sorry when construction is finished.

Such memories for me. Only a place that has the audacity to call itself "The City" can hold such charms. I recall these "golden" years with Emperor Norton and the rest of those crazy people but just don't call it "Frisco"

Secrets of the Golden Gate Bridge is a keeper, full of information you'll never want to forget; mounds of gourmet food for the mind and soul with stick-to-the-ribs humor. From Spanish explorers' rickety wooden ships to moldy underwear to the Tower of Appendicitis and the Halfway-to-Hell-Club, this book is pure historical, hysterical, and educational entertainment! EJ Knapp has given us a delightful book filled with mind-boggling statistics about the birth of the Golden Gate Bridge, an important literary work to enjoy again and again. ~ Bonnie Turner (author of Face the Winter Naked)
