Rick Zabel


I was born and raised in the farm and factory region of the Midwest, and graduated from Southern Illinois University, majoring in Film and Theater. As in Working-Class Heroes, other lost souls in books I have available at other online retailers include wannabe best-selling authors (Book Tour), screwy social misfits (Save the Wild Ass), and long-forgotten terrorists (Psycho Woman). To me, Cairo is one of the most exotic cities in the world, and Hollywood is one of the grubbiest. I live in Champaign, Illinois.

    Atmospheric, creepy. A little on the gory side, to say the least, but still a worthy read.
