BILL ROORBACH

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30; 7 PM

BILL ROORBACH will introduce Life Among Giants, a novel about 17 year-old David “Lizard” Hochmeyer, who is nearly seven feet tall, a star quarterback, and Princeton-bound. His future seems all but assured until his parents are mysteriously murdered, leaving Lizard and his older sister, Kate, adrift and alone. Over the years they are obsessed with piecing together the motives behind their parents’ deaths, returning time and again to their father’s missing briefcase, his shady business dealings, and shaky finances. And then, there is confusion over why the world’s greatest ballerina, Sylphide, has threaded her way into Lizard’s and Kate’s lives.

According to Pam Houston, author of Contents May Have Shifted, “Life Among Giants is a wild ride of a novel, deliciously visceral, psychologically twisted, furiously engaging.”
