Description

A live recording of our educational podcast The How The Why with Ryan Gattis.

Ryan Gattis is a writer & educator. His most recent novel, Safe, is a heist thriller about a DEA safecracker gone rogue, ripping off gang-owned drug safes in order to help citizens hurt during the market crash of 2008. It's essentially Robin Hood Noir. The book is set in the same world of South Central Los Angeles as his previous novel, All Involved: A Novel of the 1992 L.A. Riots, which was grounded in 2.5 years of research & background spent with former Latino gang members, firefighters, nurses, & other L.A. citizens who lived through it.

All Involved won the American Library Association's Alex Award & the Lire Award for Noir of the Year in France; translated into 11 languages, it has been called "a high-octane speedball of a read" by The New York Times & its film rights were acquired by HBO. Gattis is also the author of Kung Fu High School (Out now in the UK as Kung Fu, to be re-released in the USA in Sept. 2017).

He lives and writes in Los Angeles, where he is a member of the street art crew UGLARworks & a founding board member of 1888, a Southern California literary arts non-profit.

The How The Why is a half-hour podcast documenting the creative process and the creative purpose hosted by Jon-Barrett Ingels. This free weekly series is an educational resource provided to discuss the evolution of literary arts with industry innovators. Interviews are structured as friendly conversations and conducted via telephone. Occasionally, episodes will be recorded live at special events and highlight multiple guests. Also available on iTunes and Stitcher.
