Ed Hamilton, author of “Legends of the Chelsea Hotel," and “The Chintz Age" will be reading and signing copies of his new novel. “Lords of the Schoolyard” is an unflinching depiction of bullying in Suburban America as seen through the eyes of the bullies themselves. There are lots of books about bullying, but most are written from the point of view of the victims. There are very few books written from the point of view of the bullies themselves. Why should we care? Well, Tommy and Johnny are just kids too, after all, and they are capable of becoming decent adults. What’s more, some of them, perhaps unrepentant, do manage to get into positions of power when they grow up (in fact, we seem to have one in the White House at the moment), so it makes sense to try to understand where they are coming from.
