Background Information

Christopher Klim is an American novelist and journalist, best known for the novels Jesus Lives in Trenton and The Winners Circle. He spent his formative years as a space program physicist working on long-range satellites, but became a journalist after tracking a serial arsonist. His work has been compared to John Steinbeck, Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and Carl Hiaasen to name a few. His first novel, Jesus Lives in Trenton, became "a cult favorite satire on religious fanaticism." - (Booklist, February 2004). Klim said, "JLIT served as a litmus test, evoking people’s sense of God and religion by the title alone..." - (The Compulsive Reader, 2004). This was followed by the fictionalized study of pyromania in Everything Burns, based partly on his experiences as a journalist. Next came The Winners Circle, a satire about the meaning of wealth in America. As a result, The Book Reporter called him "among the top humor novelists of the day." His work has been praised repeatedly in Booklist, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and other national and international publications. In 2002, he launched the literary journal, Writers Notes Magazine, and in 2007, the anthology Best New Writing. He remains a popular public speaker on a broad range of topics from society to the writing craft, and he is often noted as the lead editor in restoring the works of the great American philosopher Eric Hoffer to print, as well as editing American writer Robert Gover's latter books. Christopher Klim is currently a professor of journalism at The College of New Jersey. He is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists and the Association of Documentary Editors at the University of Virginia. He is also the chair of the Eric Hoffer Award for books and prose
