Alumnus' First Book Generates Buzz, Reviewed in Sunday New York Times

Sunday, February 3, 2008

Beautiful Children, the inaugural novel by alumnus Charles Bock '91, has decidedly attracted the attention of New York Times, landing as a feature in the February 3 Sunday Book Review, and within an in-depth interview with author Bock in the January 27 edition of the weekly magazine. Evoking shades of the gritty Las Vegas in which Bock grew up, the novel is anchored by the disappearance one night of a 12-year-old boy, but delivers a range of intersecting lives.
