Two Bronx boys take radically different paths in this novel about the limits of genius and the loss of home, by a ?terrifically gifted? author (Anita Shreve, New York Times?bestselling author).   Ralph Silverman was a foreign film buff, a victim of bullies, and a boy genius. He held long conversations with his pet parakeet and spent countless hours on a computer, creating mesmerizing music and solving problems in philosophy. He was a friend of great scholars and the son of a wealthy outer-borough businessman with shady associates and a secret second family. And, as he begins to take over the story from the narrator, Ralph finds himself in South Florida, physically abused and expelled into a frightening world of the unhoused?with a broken pair of glasses, no money, and no shoes.   From the celebrated author of Searching for Bobby Fischer, Anything Is Good is a hypnotically compelling tale of a man haunted by the fate of his childhood buddy, and of that friend?s pleasures and misfortunes as he navigates an unhoused life?a life more complex and dramatic than a bypasser might ever imagine.   ?Anything Is Good . . . offers a deeply affecting dive into the lives of the unhoused. Its shifting perspective and changing narrative voice builds to a clarion call for greater empathy and understanding.? ?Geraldine Brooks, Pulitzer Prize?winning author of March   ?Anything Is Good is the best portrait of homelessness I?ve read since George Orwell?s Down and Out in London and Paris. . . . Superbly written.? ?Gabriel Byrne   Praise for Fred Waitzkin?s previous books   ?Very few writers can deliver a story with this much heart . . . A great novel.? ?Sebastian Junger   ?I?ve seldom been so captivated by a book.? ?Tom Stoppard   ?A gem of a book.? ?The New York Times
