Blood Will Out

Tuesday, Doug is joined in studio by the writer Walter Kirn, whose latest book is the story of his friendship with a man he knew as Clark Rockefeller. Kirn found him charming, intelligent, if a bit eccentric, and he enjoyed rubbing elbows with someone well-off and upper-class. But it was a ruse, and the man was eventually exposed as a fraud, a sociopath and a murderer.  So how was Walter Kirn so handily duped? "Rockefeller" himself explained it this way: vanity, vanity, vanity.

Tuesday night, April 22nd, Walter Kirn will give a reading and discussion at The King's English Bookshop. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. For details, you can call the store at 801-484-9100 or click here
