Connecticut Characters cover design by Sue Katz.

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 Lockhart:

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.

Full story here.
