“Bodies Buried in the Basement.” The Dark Side of Monte Schulz

JImageust a quick note today to let you know that my feature on Monte Schulz’s new novel, Naughty, is up over at Kirkus Reviews. It’s called “Truth Is As Strange As Fiction,” and it finds the author and I discussing the 1963 murder trials of Ralph and Iva Kroeger, on which the story is based, finding inspiration in old Robert Bloch novels, the special appeal of Fantagraphics as a publishing house, and a few insights into the attitudes of Monte’s father, the legendary cartoonist, towards his work.

You can also get a first look at Naughty as well as an excerpt from Naughty over at Fantagraphics Books. Finally, for those of you in California, I encourage you to check out the Santa Barbara Writer’s Conference, which is led and supported by Monte and his team and falls around June.
