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.
Singing, dancing, murder and magic, the theft of a painting, a short trip to hell and a despondent green monster. Eight short stories by the author of the non-fiction book Secrets of the Golden Gate Bridge and the novels Stealing The Marbles and Meter Maids Eat Their Young.
Newly Updated for the 75th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge!
From the gigantic shell mounds built by the earliest inhabitants of the San Francisco Bay area to the building of the ‘bridge that couldn’t be built’ and the SEVENTY-FIVE years following its completion, Secrets of the Golden Gate Bridge is a humorous history lesson of one of the greatest wonders of the modern world.
