Staff Reviews


Nothing is guaranteed in life. Even when you and family work to turn your disadvantaged start in life into the wonderment of studying molecular biophysics at Yale, those same family circles can work back into your world and destroy it. Thus the basis of The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace. The title tells you this is a heartbreaking story, but it is well told by the Yale roommate and friend of Robert Peace, Jeff Hobbs.

“On one level, The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace is about unfulfilled potential and heartbreaking loss, but more importantly, it deals with the pressure we all feel to succeed and be happy in an increasingly competitive society. It is a beautiful eulogy to a friend and an accurate portrayal of what it means to be young, talented, and conflicted.”
— Shawn Donley, Powell's Books, Inc, Portland, OR
