Brian Kuebler: The Long Blink

THE LONG BLINK is a narrative nonfiction book by Emmy Award-winning journalist, Brian Kuebler, who exposes the staggering cost of the American trucking industry’s rising crash rate through the intimate struggle of Ed Slattery, who is left to piece his family back together after a trucker fell asleep at the wheel and killed his wife and maimed his son. From the historic, public settlement with the trucking company and a bizarre confrontation with its driver to one father’s ongoing and, more recently, frustrating fight on Capitol Hill for safer roads, the Slattery’s story is a revealing, emotional look at the rapidly growing danger we all face from the passing lane each and every day.

Brian Kuebler is an investigative reporter in Baltimore, Maryland for WMAR-TV. A two-time Emmy and three-time Edward R. Murrow award winner, Kuebler has repeatedly been recognized for his writing and ability to tell the stories that matter. Two of those honors were for stories that eventually became his debut narrative nonfiction book, The Long Blink. Originally from New York, Brian’s career in journalism has taken him from the high desert ofIdaho to the bluff of Memphis, Tennessee and onto the streets and alleys of Baltimore. Brianlives in Charm City with his wife and his Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Shea.
