Inwood Writer Bucks the New York Trend, Embraces Optimism
INWOOD — When Adam P. Knave was younger, he thought he might grow up to be a physicist. But his family of writers and publishers had another vision for him.
"They were like, 'Well, you’re going to be a writer, right?' and did away with the idea right then," Knave said. "I was writing like I am now, but even now I still have trouble labeling myself a writer."
But write he does. With four published books under his belt, and two new releases scheduled for next year, the 35-year-old Inwood resident can’t seem to stop himself.
"Why wouldn’t I want to do this?" he said. "Essentially you are getting paid to tell lies. It’s tall tale spinning."
