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.

"More compelling even than the plot turns are Shriver's insights into human nature....Checker and The Derailleurs, like its beguiling protagonist, is hard to forget." (People)
Enjoy reading and listening to books. Love my family, yorkie and friends. I have been in RE 30 yrs. Moved from Cape Cod to FL 16 years ago.
I loved Lionel's book "We have to talk about Kevin" it was amazing. This book wasn't even in same league. What Happened?
