Schroder: A Novel
It's a little bit crazy to try to reconcile your old life with your new life (March 06, 2014)

Editorial reviews (3 reviews)

Schroder may make readers’ skin crawl, but its handling of its main character is too gentle, its target out of focus.

the reader is left to dissect a book that works as both character study and morality play, filled with questions that have no easy answers.
