Wall Street Analyst Anti-Hero of New Novel Eat What You Kill by Ted Scofield
What has struck me so far in reading the first 20 pages of Eat What You Kill, is the protagonist Evan Stoess, a junior analyst with a Wall Street investment firm, has a chip on his soldier as large as (get ready for my cliche), a boulder. He grew in a trailer park but went to a prestigious prep school. His peers in his neighborhood didn’t like him for striving to get ahead, his peers at the tony prep school didn’t like him because he was poor. He desperately wants to become wealthy and the only question is how far he’s willing to go.
I’m taping an interview with the author on April 6.
