it was amazing

Like the Catcher in the Rye, this coming of age novel, throws all of life's big questions at the reader. What is failure? what are we here for? Do you ever really know yourself? Love the respect for character Chad has. Foreign lands are baseball and the American midwest and even, the privileged academic world; to me, but I felt great empathy for all the characters. Highly recommended.

Ps had the privilege of hearing the author speak about his work last night and not only is Chad super smart (as one would expect of a Harvard Graduate) but he is seriously seriously dedicated to his craft. 14-15 hour days on editing the book for about 5 months ..... And he said was the easy part ,
