Mark Slouka talks about his new novel, Brewster, about a friendship between two teenage boys and their hopes for escape from a dead-end town. Set in 1968, 16-year-old Jon Mosher and Ray Cappicciano form a tight friendship, finding in each other everything they lack at home, and begin to dream of breaking away from Brewster for good.

Just wanted Mr Slouka to know how much I appreciate his non-fiction as well. As a high school English teacher, I have used his essay "A Year Later: Notes of America's Intimations of Mortality" regularly since 2002 as an approach to 9/11 with my students in New Jersey. Over a decade later, it still hits hard and smart.
