The house of tomorrow
Bognanni, Peter
Adult Fiction BOGNANN

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Sixteen-year-old Sebastian Prendergast has grown up isolated, homeschooled, and, in of all places, a geodesic dome in Iowa with his grandmother, a fervent Buckminster Fuller fan. Her sudden illness brings Sebastian together with his first friend ever. Jarod Whitcomb is a moody, punk music fan who's known something of loneliness, too, and the two misfits form a punk band of their own. Bognanni's characters are well drawn and sympathetic; his story is an affectionate and sly portrayal of adolescent angst and a paean to punk-and it just gets better in Lloyd James's hands. The dialogue becomes laugh-out-loud funny and James's youthful voice keeps Sebastian's first-person narrative sounding genuine. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Nov. 16). (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
