Hachette Book Group
Attending summer camp as a boy, Erik Schroder-- a first generation East German immigrant--adopts the name of Eric Kennedy, a decision that will set him on an improbable and transformative journey, SCHRODER relates the story of how years later, Erik finds himself on an urgent escape to Lake Champlain, Vermont with his daughter, hiding from authorities amidst a heated custody battle with estranged wife, Laura, who is unaware of his previous identity. From a correctional facility, Erik surveys the course of his life: his love for Laura, his childhood, his experience as a father. In this way, this sweeping and deftly-imagined novel is an exploration of the identities we take on in our lives-those we are born with, and those we construct for ourselves.

About a guy who kidnaps his daughter. He is very sympathetic but you understand why he should not be responsible for a child.

Disturbing book about a man and his relationships with those around him. Not a book I would recommend.

Schroder re-invents himself at the age of fourteen and never looks back. He changes his name and manufacturers a new family and a new history. Life is good, until it isn't. Bewildered he continues on until he has dug himself into an inextricable hole. Lots to think about in this story - family, nature or nurture, communication - but possibly for Schroder the biggest question might be, is love all you really need. Really enjoyed the story and I found the writing to be fantastic.
