From The New York Times: Jimmy Breslin, Legendary New York City Newspaper Columnist, Dies at 88

Back in 2008, Bob Edwards in Washington, D.C. and Jimmy Breslin in New York sat down for a conversation about his book The Good Rat: A True Story; but as was usual in Edwards’ interviews, there was much more than just the book, with much of Breslin’s long career in journalism examined. From the introduction:

Sammy the Bull and Jimmy the Clam are not just characters in a book-they are real people who Jimmy Breslin has known and written about. Breslin is the Pullitzer Prize-winning newspaper columnist who once wrote a novel called The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight. His new book is called The Good Rat: A True Story. It’s about a witness who testified against his fellow gangsters and lived to tell about it.

Script/roadmap from the paper archives included.
