Birch Hills at World’s End on This Blog Will Change Your Life

“Arguably though a goal of any coming of age tale is to make it fresh, both familiar and unfamiliar, or more accurately, familiar, yet new, all of which is to say that Birch Hills @ World’s End by Geoff Hyatt does much of this exceedingly well. And yes, freshly. Is there another novel set against Y2K and Columbine, and did we remember they happened so closely together? We did not. Birch Hills @ World’s End so much more though, and it pushed so many buttons for us about what it means to be different and young and male, being a freak, or geek, bullying and violence, and so there it is, go read it, because it just might change your life.”

Author, pop culture scholar, runner, and (faux) media mogul Ben Tanzer’s write-up of Birch Hills at World’s End is up on This Blog Will Change Your Life. Available for download is also a 30 minute podcast chat in which we discuss the book, I express an inordinate amount of concern about Cafecito’s milk frother, and Ben relates the tale of a short-lived beer can pyramid.
