CT Post scribe Brian Lockhart profiles my new book Connecticut Characters, Personalities Spicing Up The Nutmeg State. OIB readers are welcome to attend my book signing May 11, 5:30-7 p.m., Barnum Museum. If you’re dying to buy it now, we won’t say no, order your book here.
From working as a journalist (he used a singing telegram to land an interview) and for Donald Trump (“it’s sorta like riding a bronco), to probing the unknown (with ghost hunters) and eating the unknown (while incarcerated), Lennie Grimaldi’s new book is a career retrospective and a sampling of Connecticut characters.
In fact that is the title, “Connecticut Characters: Personalities Spicing Up the Nutmeg State.”
The subjects, besides Trump, include late, fallen, returned and trailblazing politicians; paranormal investigators and a film actress–Linda Blair–famous for playing a possessed child in paranormal film The Exorcist; law enforcers and breakers–a police chief, an undercover cop, a private investigator, a Hell’s Angel, the mob; men successful in the boxing ring and the financial arena; an executive with a big heart–the founder of Americares–and a naturalist with an iron stomach for living off the land.
