A Message From Sweeney
Corey Kilgannon, a freelancer for The New York Times, wrote a news feature
about me in the Jan. 19 metro section of the newspaper.
Within hours of its publication, I had received a spate of e-mails,
including one from a literary agent who later convinced me that I ought to
tackle a novel I've been carrying around in my head for more than three
decades......
