Book Launch: Some Hell by Patrick Nathan — in conversation w/ Mark Doten

Middle school hasn’t been going well for Colin. His teenage sister teases him mercilessly, his autistic brother lashes out at him, and he has a crush on his best friend, Andy. But after his father commits suicide, none of that matters. Colin is awash in guilt and casts about for someone to confide in: first his estranged grandfather, then a predatory science teacher. But nothing helps as much as the strange notebooks his father kept locked in his study. In SOME HELL, a debut novel of devastating intensity, Patrick Nathan shows how unspeakable tragedy shapes a life, and how imagination saves us from ourselves.
