Reed College Grad's Amazing Debut Novel

It's rare for an author's debut novel to make him a multi-millionaire.  It's even more rare for such an author to write a critically-acclaimed book while still in college! Roger Hobbs, author of the new novel Ghostman, joined us to share how he wrote the book during the summer between his junior and senior years at Reed. He spent the school year rewriting it and editing. The manuscript was sent off on the day he graduated​. A few weeks later it caused an uproar at the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair, and has since sold in more than fifteen countries around the world as well as having Warner Bros. buy the movie rights!
