Richard Kramer - These Things Happen

In These Things Happen ($24.95), a novel set in Manhattan and told in an ensemble of voices, we first meet Wesley Bowman, a tenth grader with a bright future. We’ve all known someone like Wesley—the earnest, sweet kid with a formidable intelligence who is nonetheless still awkward. When Wesley becomes the victim of an act of violence, the fragile structure of his modern family abruptly tips, exposing everyone's heart. . In this moving, big-hearted book, Richard Kramer reminds us that sometimes we’re capable of more than we realized, capable of greater honesty, greater insight, and also greater love. 

Richard Kramer is the Emmy and multiple Peabody award winning writer, director and producer of numerous TV series, including Thirtysomething, My So-called Life, Tales of the City, and Once and Again. His first short story appeared in The New Yorker while he was still an undergraduate at Yale. He grew up outside New York and lives in Los Angeles.
