’Life Among Giants’ author talk on Dec. 6
ANDOVER - Author Bill Roorbach will read from his new book, “Life Among Giants,” on Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. at Andover Bookstore, 89 Main St.
“Life Among Giants” is the story of David “Lizard” Hochmeyer, who at 17 is nearly 7 feet tall, the star quarterback of his high school football team, and Princeton-bound.
His life seems as if it’s going to turn out perfectly, until his parents are mysteriously gunned down in front of his eyes. Lizard and his sister Kate, suddenly parentless, are left adrift and full of questions about what secrets lie behind their murders.
As Kate and Lizard attempt to find their way in the world (Kate into Yale, Lizard eventually playing for the Miami Dolphins and then starting his own restaurant), they return time and again to the mysterious briefcase their father left behind, his potentially shady dealings, shaky money situation, and finally - the glamorous couple living in the mansion down the street.
