FIT Authors Talks: Richie Narvaez


Adjunct Assistant Professor Richie Narvaez talks about his book, Hipster Death Rattle.
In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the hippest neighborhood in New York, slacker reporter Tony Moran and his ex Magaly Fernandez get caught up in a missing person’s case—all the while avoiding a serial killer on the loose. Filled with a cast of colorful characters and told with sardonic wit, this fast-moving, intricately plotted novel plays out against a backdrop of rapid gentrification, skyrocketing rents, and class tension. New Yorkers and anyone fascinated with the city will love the story’s details, written like only a true native could.
Among its accolades, Hipster Death Rattle was listed as a Best of 2019 Suspense Thriller by Suspense Magazine, and it was included as one of Latina Book Club‘s 2019 Books of the Year.
