Event Horizon Press has released a new volume of nonfiction, Stealing Cars With The Pros, written by Maui Time editor Anthony Pignataro.
Much of the book â€” which takes its title from a 2002 OC Weekly feature about a night Pignataro spent with two repo men â€” pulls from his years spent at OC Weekly and Maui Time.
“The book is a collection of some of my more noir-themed reporting since I became a reporter in January 1996,” explains Pignataro. “The stories touch on classic noir themes â€” cops/crooks, beautiful women, misfits, rich guys, etc. Since much of my writing for alt-weeklies has been in the first person, the book ended up being more of a memoir of my journalism career so far than I’d anticipated when I first put it together.”
