American Spaz is auto-biographical fiction by Greg Kieser and chronicles a decade of his life – from 7 to 17 years old - during which time he lost both parents, moved from place to place, and did whatever he needed to do to survive. As the youngest of six children, he had many opportunities during that decade to rely on, and sometimes reject, the love of family.
A newspaper article about Kieser’s late father speaks to “The Truth” behind the fiction. And, in the short film “How I Became a Spaz (and you can too)” Kieser himself attempts to explain his unique approach to achieving social and financial success, while summarizing the steps others can take. An interview with the author further allows him to elaborate on these subjects and share his outlook on storytelling.
