Walter Kirn: Blood Will Out

“Dark and witty” (Publishers Weekly), Walter Kirn has been praised for his excoriating and exquisitely detailed satires of modern American life. Two of his novels, Thumbsucker and the “hilarious, often ingenious” (Time Out New York) Up in the Air, were adapted into popular films, and he is also the author of the memoir Lost in the Meritocracy: The Undereducation of an Overachiever. His work has appeared in Esquire, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Book Review, among other publications. Kirn is also a contributing editor to Time and fiction editor for GQ. In a real-life case of In Cold Blood meets The Talented Mr. Ripley, Blood Will Out tells the story of Kirn’s 15-year friendship with a man he thought was merely an eccentric son of privilege, but was later revealed to be a conman and murderer.
