Staff Pick: Schroder

Schroder (eAudio Book) by Amity Gaige  Provided by Laura Guldeman is a Collection Development Analyst for OverDrive

I began reading Schroder (eBook) by Amity Gaige with an open mind. The story turned out to be an easy read; but I found myself facing a storm cloud of social issues: some expected some not. The protagonist of the story, Eric Kennedy, aka Eric Schroder (where we get the name for our tale) attempts to remake his life as a youth at an ‘all boys’ summer camp, fabricating an elite backstory of having some distant relation to the Hyannis Port Kennedys.

Eric continues to live through the fa├žade he has created into adulthood and marriage; where the decisions he made in his youth begin to affect his future.

“In SCHRODER, Amity Gaige explores the rich, murky realm where parental devotion edges into mania and logic crabwalks into crime. This offbeat, exquisitely written novel showcases a fresh, forceful young voice in American letters.”—Jennifer Egan, author of A Visit from the Goon Squad (eBook)

Also available as an eAudio Book in the eMedia Catalog.
