Knipfel, Jim

Tagged: Author

(1965-    ) US journalist and author whose Slackjaw column (1987-current) in a succession of fringe papers has a loyal following. His first novel, The Buzzing (2003), is a gonzo tale of Paranoia in a New York increasingly devastated by no longer imaginary Monsters; possibly it was all a dream, though the tale loses interest if deflated in this fashion. Unplugging Philco (2009) is also a Satire, this time set in a more firmly avowed Near Future. [JC]
