Skippy Dies by Paul Murray
“If killing your protagonist with more than 600 pages to go sounds audacious, it’s nothing compared with the literary feats Murray pulls off in this hilarious, moving and wise book. Recently named to the Man Booker Prize long list, “Skippy Dies” is an epic crafted around, of all things, a pack of 14-year-old boys. It’s the “Moby-Dick” of Irish prep schools.”
-from Jess Walter’s review on the Washington Post
suggestion made by vice pres. Eva Wetzel
“Join me, if you dare, on an epic journey of prescription drug abuse, M-theory, Celtic myths, World War I, jelly doughnuts, and crying over this amazing book.”
