Michael J. Malone’s fiction appears in the 2013 Westchester Review.  His journalism has been published in The New York Times, Playboy,, Rugby Magazine and New York Magazine. Malone's debut novel, No Never, No More, details a city, and a neighborhood, undergoing momentous transformation.  Part 2 of his Tompkins Trilogy, the novel When I Was Punk captures the colorful history of punk rock and protest in Tompkins Square Park.  Part 3 of the three-novel series, Betsy Town, is published in the fall of 2015.  


An occasional book critic and beer writer, Malone’s Books & Beer show airs twice a month on WVOX and is available in iTunes as Mike Malone’s Books & Beer.  He lives in New York and roots for the Mets.
