Adam Smyer is joined in conversation by Carol H. Hood for the hometown book launch of his debut novel, Knucklehead.


In Knucklehead we meet Marcus Hayes, a black law student who struggles, sometimes unsuccessfully, with the impulse to confront everyday bad behavior with swift and antisocial action. The cause of this impulse is unknown to him. When Marcus unexpectedly becomes involved with the brilliant and kind Amalia Stewart, her love and acceptance pacify his demons. But when his demons return, he is no longer inclined to contain them.

ADAM SMYER is an attorney, martial artist, and mediocre bass player. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and two cats. Knucklehead is his debut novel.

CAROL H. HOOD is an award winning writer, aspiring novelist and comic writer whose work can be found in Dame, The Establishment, The Frisky, Everyday Feminism, Gawker, Huffington Post and more.
