In 1981, six weeks after being paroled from prison with the help of Norman Mailer, author-criminal Jack Henry Abbott killed Richard Adan, manager of the Binibon, a small East Village restaurant.

Science fiction writer Jack Womack provides the text for this amazing confluence of art, crime, and celebrity.
