Daniel Torday, Associate Professor and Director of Creative Writing at Bryn Mawr College (on leave 2018-2019), is author of the new novel Boomer1, which is receiving strong reviews. The book was released in September. Some excerpts and links:
"A contemporary satire with Shakespearean echoes. ... Torday reveals the artificiality of all identity markers, from given names to generational monikers. … The hybridization of past and present permeates the novel, complicating any division between ‘us’ and ‘them’." — The New York Times Book Review
"Torday's gifts as a writer are brilliantly displayed in the details of Cassie and Mark's inner and outer worlds. ... Stylishly written, cleverly observed, and boldly imagined." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"A hilarious story about generational conflict brought to a boiling point. ... Torday’s wry examination of those attempting to survive in postrecession America is particularly poignant." — Publishers Weekly
