With the entire school a potential threat to his last ties with sanity, Howard turns to an inhuman power that is as destructive to his own self as it is to others.Part coming-of-age, part tragicomedy, part neo-noir, part fantasy, part literary thriller, HOWARD is a tour-de-force of one young mans mis-adventures in a post-adolescent world that has become as lifeless, plastic, desperately digitized and ruthlessly cutthroat as your average maximum security prison. A novel for the modern age, Howard, will at once remind you of Salingers Holden Caufield running through the rye, only in an age where the fields of rye have been replaced by pastel suburban mausoleums in which children pay dearly simply for the sin of having been born. This is a first novel by a young and promising new author not to be taken the least bit lightly.--Vincent Zandri, bestselling author of The Remains
