After Sarah Lawrence College, Bill Manville attended the Universite de la Mediteraneen, "majoring in roulette and oranges." His career includes columnist for the Village Voice and the Key West Solares Hill, contributing editor for Cosmo and Madison Ave Vice President. "Got my first library card at six," he says, "and by seven no longer wanted to be a fireman but a writer. Most recently I've been hosting a radio talk show, Addictions & Answers, but primarily think of myself as a writer still."
His novel Goodbye was a BOM selection. Living in California, he says his hobbies are "maligning my friends and working on a new novel--or are they the same thing?"
