Brewster. With the efficiency of tightly written prose, Slouka introduces and develops this story of friendship. The novel’s action takes place in 1968 in the small upstate town of Brewster, New York, and is narrated by protagonist Jon Mosher from decades later as he looks back to that year when he was a teenager. In as many ways as this is a novel of friendship and coming of age, it is also a novel of grief, and Slouka pulls all that off in fewer than three hundred pages. Treat yourself to a few well-spent hours reading this well-written novel about a living with love and with loss. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Brewster from amazon.com.
