School Board: A Novel

Mike Freedman

[A] total joy to read. -- Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk and Brief Encounters with Che Guevara

"Darkly comic and charming as heck, School Board announces Mike Freedman as one of our brightest new literary stars.” -- Amber Dermont, author of The Starboard Sea and Damage Control

"One part Ignatius J. Reilly from A Confederacy of Dunces, one part Hazel Motes from Wise Blood, and several parts Willie Stark from All the King&39;s Men, Catfish Davis is a singular presence on the page. --David Abrams, author of Fobbit

Set in Houston in the last year of the twentieth century, School Board is a roaring comic allegory for the coming post-9/11 world and generation. At the center of this hilarious tale is quixotic high school senior class president Tucker “Catfish” Davis, who has never encountered a fight he didn’t take on. Events soon have Tucker challenging school board incumbent Walker Moore, a senior executive at an Enron-like company. And like his Louisiana populist heroes, rabble-rousing Tucker is not opposed to using Huey Long-style tactics to win and protect the “little folks” of Houston.

Mike Freedman lives in Houston, where he was born and raised. After graduating college, he served in the Army in the infantry and in the Special Forces as a Green Beret.
