An Afternoon with Tod Goldberg

Author: Tod Goldberg

Join us as author Tod Goldberg talks about his new book, “Gangsterland,” and signs copies in a reception afterwards. Perhaps one of the best Mafia novel in years, “Gangsterland” is a dark, funny, and smart page-turning crime story in which a former hit man, hiding out as a Las Vegas rabbi, isn’t quite as done with the Mafia as he wanted to be.

Goldberg is also the author of several crime novels including the "Burn Notice" series, "Fake Liar Cheat" and "Living Dead Girl," a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. His essay “When They Let Them Bleed” was selected by Cheryl Strayed for inclusion in "Best American Essays 2013." He is also the author of the story collections "Simplify," a 2006 finalist for the SCIBA Award for Fiction and winner of the Other Voices Short Story Collection Prize. His short fiction has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, twice receiving Special Mention for the Pushcart Prize as well as being named a Distinguished Story of the Year in the "2009 Best American Mystery Stories."
