Michael Finkel


Powell's City of Books (map) Downtown
Wed., March 22, 7:30 p.m. 2017


From 1986 to 2013, Christopher Thomas Knight lived alone in the Maine woods—never interacting with anyone, refusing to even light a fire lest civilized folk find him, and committing more than 1,000 robberies to steal everything he owned and ate (including CHILDREN'S CANDY). So: super-creepy weirdo or iconic role model? You decide! Start by hitting Powell's tonight, where Michael Finkel will read from The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit, his new book in which he interviews Knight about nearly three decades of nature, solitude, and relentless home invasion.
