P.F. Kluge, the Writer in Residence at Kenyon College, author of the novel Eddie and The Cruisers, Biggest Elvis, and, most recently, Gone Tomorrow, as well as having two films based on his work, Dog Day Afternoon and Eddie And The  Cruisers, has a novel coming out this September from Overlook Press.

This novel is set in the 1980’s and follows the life of  Hans Greifinger, a German-American who immigrated to the United States in 1928 and settled in New York and New Jersey. It is a story of him and his son, a nationally-syndicated travel writer.

Askold Melnyczuk writes of the book, “Kluge knows his characters from the inside and his comic, loving portrayals stand with the best of Russo and Irving. Jersey has never seemed more exotic. Kluge entertains while provoking all the big questions about the meaning of origins and the search for home.”
