How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets
Evan had a hit single, but that was ten years ago. Thirty-one now, he's drifting, playing in a local band and teaching middle-aged men to coax music from an electric guitar. Beset at a young age with a life-threatening form of epilepsy, he's kept his condition a secret. But his deepest secret is that he got his high school sweetheart pregnant. Then her conservative parents whisked her out of Seattle and out of Evan's life. Now, fourteen years later, he experiences unplanned parenthood when he undertakes to raise the resentful teenage son he's never known. Off beat and disarming, How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets portrays a contemporary American family with unfailing honesty. Garth Stein, a former documentary filmmaker, was co-producer of an Academy Award-winning short film. How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets is his second novel; his first, Raven Stole the Moon, was published by Pocket Books. His third novel,The Art of Racing in the Rain, will be published by HarperCollins in 2008 and is being translated around the world. He lives in Seattle with his wife and children.
