Hello,

I'm Richard Wall, author of the novel, Fat Man Blues, Near Death, and some other stuff.

My stories reflect my life-long fascination with the dark underbelly of American culture; be it tales of the Wild West, the simmering menace of the Deep South, the poetry of Charles Bukowski, or Langston Hughes, the writing of Andrew Vachss and John Steinbeck, or the music of Charley Patton, Son House, Johnny Cash, or Tom Waits.

Richard Wall Losing myself in a world of my own making. Meeting other writers. Seeing nice words written about my stories.

“I started thinking about the roof and how I’d like to have a garden up there someday—there was sure as hell enough fertilizer already in place. I could tell I was getting tired because I was starting to think like a citizen. Putting down roots, even on a city roof, is blubber-brained. Roots are nice, but a tree can’t run.”
Andrew Vachss, Flood / Strega / Blue Belle
