Tom Bentley’s newest book is a memoir of his teenage shoplifting business, Sticky Fingers: Confessions of a Marginally Repentant Shoplifter. He is the author of three novels, a short story collection and a how-to book on finding your writer’s voice. He’s published hundreds of freelance pieces in newspapers, magazines, and online. If you’re in the neighborhood, he would like you to pour him a Manhattan right at five. See his other lurid confessions at www.tombentley.com.
