Episode 24 - The Numbers Game
Released in 2002, The Contortionist's Handbook has been a slow, but steady sales climber and has been translated into many languages. Authors Chuck Palahnuik and Irvine Welsh have praised this book and Clevenger's neo-noir writing style. Last year Handbook was optioned for the big screen.
Dermaphoria was released in 2005 and was Craig's "problem child" as they were not on speaking terms for periods of time or in a state of writer euphoria during good times. The first manuscript met its demise by paper shredder.
Craig is currently on work on his third novel based upon the short story called The Fade.
This week's story, The Numbers Game, is featured in the recently released San Francisco Noir 2: The Classics.
