Joe Clifford's writing career was immensely helped when he was hit by a bus. Today, this bestselling mystery and crime writer has a dozen books to his name and life is good, even if it requires a cane.
Carter and Joe discuss Joe's past struggles with heroin addiction, his inability or desire to hold down a 9-5 job, and love and heartbreak within the publishing industry.
At the end of the conversation, they make up a noirish tale using a beginning sentence from Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises.
