Synopsis of the Novel, Ring in a River
With Ring in a River, the storm continues unabated. Eckhard Gerdes takes the reader into the world of Austin, Texas, circa April 1962, and transplants a newly disenfranchised Iowa philosophy professor into a life of jazz, ornithology, madness, and self-redefinition in that inimitable way which we have come to expect of this great writer.
