?uestlove: “The Suicide Set” — Book Launch September 10th

The official Killing Williamsburg book launch will be on World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10th, 2013, at Trash Bar in Williamsburg, 7pm. To kick it off, the legendary DJ Questlove (celebrated drummer of the Roots, Jimmy Fallon’s bandleader, memoirist, crate-digger extraordinaire, “arbiter of cool,” [Jamilah Lemieux] all-around nice guy [me]) will spin a “Suicide Set”—songs by or about suicides. Considering how many wonderful artists have chosen to leave the party early, Q is bound to knock us out.


FREE ON KINDLE 8.13 – 8.17

In celebration of the lovely review by Publishers Weekly, and just in time for the reading in San Marcos, Guatemala, I´m pleased to offer Killing Williamsburg as a FREE Kindle download for the next 5 days, Aug. 13-17. For those of you who may be geographically disadvantaged in purchasing books, check out the free Kindle reader app that will let you read my book on darn near anything. Click here for the promotion.

Spinelli’s Killing Williamsburg is as stingingly honest as a fresh wound. … The author may have been born in North Dakota, but it’s obvious that his soul was pounded and risen and baked in New York City. It’s in his veins, in his balls, and he manages to transmit Brooklyn’s sick charm to readers everywhere, a bit like a quick shot of highly urbanized literary smack.

Spoonbill puts “Killing Williamsburg” poster in the window 

Live on Bedford Avenue, foot-traffic center of the universe! Plus, today they were shooting photographs of the storefront for an “Independent Bookstores of Brooklyn” pin-up calendar, so Megan Carey’s sick cover will be featured in that, too.

Now UNDERGROUND on the L train! 

How apt? With all those scenes set on the L train or at L train stations, how perfect that the book is now on sale IN an L train station. If you didn’t see the news on Gothamist or elsewhere about the new hipster Newsstand—well, now you can buy my book while you’re transferring to the G.
