New video profile featuring Jerome Charyn

We've got another exclusive video profile, this time featuring Jerome Charyn, author of the Isaac Sidel series. 

Charyn is a critically acclaimed author of nearly fifty books. Born in the Bronx, he attended Columbia College, where he fell in love with the works of Faulkner and Joyce. After graduating, he took a job as a playground director and wrote in his spare time, producing his first novel, a Lower East Side fairytale called Once Upon a Droshky, in 1964. While stalled on a book he was writing about the dark ages, Charyn discovered a kind of dark ages flourishing in his own back yard. His older brother--a detective working homicide--took to driving him around New York City in his squad car, and Isaac Sidel was born. In 1974 Charyn published Blue Eyes, his first Isaac Sidel mystery.
