About the Creator

Jim Fusilli is the author of 9 novels including The Mayor of Polk Street, an Audible Original, and its predecessor Narrows Gate, which Mystery Scene magazine said, "must be ranked among the half-dozen most memorable novels about the Mob." Jim’s debut novel Closing Time was the last work of fiction set in New York City published prior to the 9/11 attacks. The following year, his A Well-Known Secret addressed the impact of 9/11 on the residents of lower Manhattan. His subsequent novels include Tribeca Blues and Hard, Hard City. Closing Time, A Well-Known Secret, and Tribeca Blues were reissued by Open Road Media in October 2018. Lawrence Block provided a new foreword for Closing Time. The former Rock and Pop critic of the Wall Street Journal and occasional contributor to NPR’s All Things Considered, Jim is the author of two books of nonfiction including Pet Sounds, his tribute to Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys’ classic album. A favorite of novelists inspired by contemporary pop music, it was translated for a Japanese language edition by Haruki Murakami.
