Shelton, CT Author Publishes Riveting Fiction Novel

February 04, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
October, a new book by David Broder, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Can an angry, disaffected, self-destructive young man find hope and solace at an insane asylum when he doesn't believe they can possibly exist?

It is 1983, and Derek is twenty-one and at war with existence itself. If he is vanquished, he lives. If he is victorious, he dies.

October challenges all the life-affirming ideas we have been imbued with by calling into question the notions that life has value and meaning, that love is not selfish, and that the people we are closest to will not harm us.

October will resonate with those who feel we are all living our lives in delusion, trusting traditional values, relying on all those beliefs that are created to do nothing more than give us a reason to get out of bed. October is for those who, like its author, David Broder, question everything and trust nothing.
