HOGAN GORMAN: author of “Hot Cripple” (Penguin 2012). Based on her one woman show called “Hot Cripple”, which I won the Outstanding Actor Award at the NYC Fringe Festival, “Hot Cripple” is Hogan’s true story about being the blue-eyed, blond model/actress who became the unlikely poster girl for the plight of the poor and uninsured in America after she was struck by a car in New York City street in 2004. Of Hogan’s book, Rachel Dratch said, “Hogan Gorman’s story will make you furious, it will make you incredulous, and it will also make you laugh your ass off,” and Salman Rushdie called it, “a smart, tough and very funny book.”
