A nostalgic look back at life told through the eyes of four memorable characters awaits readers in The Rubber Room, the newest book from veteran and acclaimed author Ivan R. Bosanko.
Set in the 1950s, The Rubber Room tells the story of four close friends, who call themselves “the Amigos”, as they come of age. Readers will meet Katey, the daughter of strict Irish-Catholic immigrant parents; Greg, who was born with the proverbial “silver spoon” now finds himself trying to prove that money and family connection go together; Rico, who is trying to break into Hollywood; and Jerry, whose alcoholic mother never wanted him to succeed.
On their own, the Amigos have their lives twisted, turned and bounced until, one by one, each fall victim in a “rubber room” of their own making. Their respective experiences symbolically mirror the wave of change that defined the decade. With its in-depth characterization, The Rubber Room will give readers an unforgettable odyssey.
