Book Nook: 'The Deal Goes Down' by Larry Beinhart
Vick Mickunas shares his interview about Larry Beinhart's book, The Deal Goes Down.
Somehow I had missed out on Larry Beinhart, a prolific writer who had never been on my book radar before this. I consider myself fortunate he put out this latest novel and a publicist I have known for years alerted me that this was a book I should definitely check out. And he was right. I loved this story!

What's that Cheap Trick lyric? "I want you to want me!" That's it! He hadn't been feeling very wanted lately. That's all I'm saying about this one. I hope you decide to read it.
