Sinossi

“American Spaz The Novel” is a coming-of-age story with girls and love and death – fists and knives and guns. After going through double tragedies as a child Henry Kreiser grows into a teenager he does not want to be. It starts in 1978 in a suburb of Philadelphia and continues on the farms of a rural boarding school for disadvantaged children. It ends on the tough streets of Trenton, New Jersey in 1988.

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.

All three - the article, the short film and the interview - can be found at www.americanspaz.com

5.0 su 5 stelle American Spaz by Greg Kieser - Book Review 21 dicembre 2011
Di Isabella - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Review of American Spaz, The Novel, by Greg Kieser released on December 2011. A fictionalize story, that is beautifully written and emotionally moving filled with realistic characters -- the author examines death, grief, healing and the continuance of life when he surprisingly finds humor and love on this journey. A family struggles in dealing with complex unresolved feelings of guilt, anger, loss, prejudice and love in an attempt to stay together. Henry, one of the main characters, in attempt to find himself and a girl --rebelliously crosses the bridge to an environment that seems tantalizing at first. This is a quick and compelling read.

5.0 su 5 stelle American Spaz, not just a novel, but a time machine 7 febbraio 2012
Di Tom Firestone - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I recently finished reading AMERICAN SPAZ The Novel by Greg Kieser. This was a fun and fast read that brought back many memories of the eights. Kieser has a refined prose that cuts to the point and doesn't linger too long before pushing his readers to the next marker of his journey, his life. The characters are so well developed they feel real, and I suppose that's part of writing a biography, but this novel makes the 80s, the crazy situations and each and every character seem like your best friends and family, not just Mr. Keisers. When I read the back cover's tag line: A coming of age story with GIRLS + LOVE + DEATH + FISTS + KNIVES + GUNS, I thought it was just a fun play on words, but I would say if 6 words could sum up the novel, these would be it. I would possible add one more: COOL.

4.0 su 5 stelle Gripping story of an exceptional youth 2 gennaio 2012
Di E. Mulkowsky - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
While the time and setting are familiar (suburban America in the '70's and '80's), the trials and journey of the young protagonist, Henry, are anything but. Henry's feelings and the love of his family are always relate-able, and the book captures the pressures and confusion of the middle school years painfully accurately. The debut novelist writes with great empathy about his young character in this very personal story, creating a vivid portrait of a searching youth wrestling with his identity in troubled circumstances.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Great Novel 23 febbraio 2012
Di Molly B - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This is a coming of age story about a young boy, dealing with the struggles of adoselence: sibling rivalary, young love and finding your true identity. As the reader you are brought along on this journey and meet all sorts of interesting characters along the way. The author does an incredible job of allowing the reader to feel everything that the young character feels. I loved the book and would definitely recommend it.

Great book. Very good read. The awkwardly honest details of the challenges he'd gone through were pretty inspiring. It made me feel like I wasn't alone. Well done
