Book reviews of Professor of English Jim Shepard’s new novel, Project X, are starting to appear.

Can you imagine Holden Caulfield roaming the halls of Columbine High with a Kalashnikov assault rifle?

Jim Shepard has, in a disturbing new novel that turns yesterday’s headlines into every parent’s nightmare.

The Williamstown author and college professor has written “Project X,” a grimly funny field trip through eighth grade hell as told by “the kid you think about when you want to make yourself feel better.”

Shepard is, coincidentally, reading at one of our local bookstores tomorrow. Perhaps it is time for some blog reporting.
