Life among giants : a novel
Bill Roorbach
Adult Fiction ROORBAC

Comments  Summary  Reviews

Summary: This funny, exuberant novel captures the reader with the grand sweep of seven-foot-tall David "Lizard" Hochmeyer's larger-than-life quest to unravel the mystery surrounding his parents' deaths. It's a journey laden with pro football stars, a master chef and his beautiful transvestite lover, a world-famous ballerina and her English rocker husband, and a sister who's as brilliant as she is unstable. A wildly entertaining, plot-twisting novel of murder, seduction, and revenge--rich in incident, expansive in character, and lavish in setting --Life Among Giants is an exhilarating adventure. Editors' pick for Amazon's Best of 2012 Shelf Awareness Top Ten Best Fiction of 2012 Columbus Dispatch 's Top Books of 2012
