Christopher Klim is an American author.

Literary life[edit]

Robert Gover compared Klim's work to John Steinbeck.[1] Klim said, "[His novel Jesus Lives in Trenton] served as a litmus test, evoking people’s sense of God and religion by the title alone..."[2] The review in The Book Reporter of his novel The Winners Circle, a satire about the meaning of wealth in America, said that the book "was sure to cinch Christopher Klim's place among the top humor novelists of the day."[3]

From 2003 to 2015, Klim was the lead editor for restoring Eric Hoffer's work to print.[4][5] Klim was also the editor in both restoring Robert Gover's work to print and editing Gover's final trio of books.[4][6]

Klim became the Chairman[7] of the Eric Hoffer Book Award in 2005.[n 1]
