Happy birthday, James Grady.
DC-area resident James Grady, probably best known for his thriller Six Days of the Condor that was adapted into the 1975 film Three Days of the Condor starring Robert Redford, turns 58 today. His latest novel is Mad Dogs, which will be out in paperback in June, and he has a story in the anthology DC Noir.
If you ever get the chance, read the Washington Post interview with Grady by Sarah Booth Conroy from September 14, 1984. I kept it for years because it was so inspirational about writing.
