The Enders Hotel: A Memoir

The Enders Hotel: A Memoir by Brandon R. Schrand
This memoir is a classic coming-of-age story in which the author casts himself as an antihero in the tradition of Holden Caulfield. Schrand's stories of life at the family-owned Enders Hotel in Soda Springs, ID, resonate with the wide-eyed enthusiasm of youth and yet are balanced with the sober vision of hindsight./School Library Journal

...Schrand's deeply textured memoir of life in a small Idaho town boasts a rich palette of glittering iridescent hues, somber earth tones, and delicate, evocative washes...Schrand's memoir sings, stirring the senses as much as the soul.
