The Kryptonite Kid returns!

In 2014, I reflected on a 1979 book that I’d recently read, The Kryptonite Kid by Joseph Torchia.

No less a legend than reviewer Pauline Kael had praised it, yet it had gone out of print.

Torchia died young in 1996, but his niece Erika wanted to bring his book back to life.

After five years of discussions and preparations and revisions, she has done just that. TKK has been reborn as an e-book so a new generation of fans can be minted.

If you, like me, missed the book in ’79, don’t make the same mistake now. It’s one that will stay with you. Get it here.
