Praise for Conrad in Beverly Hills

"Throughout this unusual novel, Conrad proves to be a quirky if brutally honest narrator, revealing his many sexual obsessions, deep-seated confusion over his Jewish identity, and thinning patience for academic protocol. First-novelist Fuchs, himself the son of a screenwriter, brings a droll sense of humor and a richly detailed sense of place to this original and memorable family story."

"Fuchs is at his best portraying teenage angst. He is superb at catching that mixture of inarticulate cluelessness, awkward, confused sexuality, and bizarre acting out."—Redwood Coast Review

Chapter 1: Conrad’s Campaign

He comes crashing through his door. He’s got me. I’m right there, in the hall or at the top of the stairs. He accuses me of noise, of singing, tromping, but I can’t remember doing anything. I can’t think.
