Schroder PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Schroder free pdf Thsi book was shortlisted for the Folio Prize 2014. Attending a New England summer camp as an adolescent, young Erik Schroder - a first generation East German immigrant - adopts a new name and a new persona - Eric Kennedy - in the hopes that it will help him fit in. This fateful white lie will set him on an improbable and ultimately tragic course. Schroder relates the story of Eric's urgent escape years later through the New England countryside with his six-year-old daughter, Meadow, in an attempt to outrun the authorities amidst a heated custody battle with his wife, who will soon discover that her husband is not who he says he is. From a correctional facility, Eric surveys the course of his life in order to understand - and maybe even explain - his behaviour- the painful separation from his mother in childhood- a harrowing escape to America with his taciturn father- a romance that withered under a shadow of lies- and his proudest moments and greatest regrets as a flawed but loving father.
