The members of his band, The Derailleurs, are passionately devoted to their guiding spirit, as are all who fall under Checker's spell. But when another drummer, Eaton Striker, hears the prodigy play, he is pulled inexorably into Checker's orbit by a powerful combination of envy and admiration. Soon The Derailleurs, too, are torn apart by latent jealousies that Eaton does his utmost to bring alive.

Lionel Shriver - Zeitgeist by the throat☺️
Lionel Shriver is one of my favorite authors and I loved this book. I read a review that says “ If Jodi Picoult has her finger on the zeitgeist, Shriver has her hands around its throat” (Ron Charles, Washington Post)
This book made me think of this quote - it is smart, laugh out loud funny and above all optimistic. Shrivers worldview is endlessly interesting and her lacerating wit skewers topics as varied as immigration, intolerance and the perception of women’s role in society. Loved this book and loved the audible performance. Highly recommended
