This funny, exuberant novel captures the reader with the grand sweep of seven-foot-tall David "Lizard" Hochmeyer's larger-than-life quest to unravel the mystery surrounding his parents' deaths. It's a journey laden with pro football stars, a master chef and his beautiful transvestite lover, a world-famous ballerina and her English rocker husband, and a sister who's as brilliant as she is unstable. A wildly entertaining, plot-twisting novel of murder, seduction, and revenge--rich in incident, expansive in character, and lavish in setting --Life Among Giants is an exhilarating adventure.

David Hochmeyer is nearly a giant at almost 7 ft. and his life contains giants in sports, dance, music, cooking, architecture and nature. Central to his life is the unsolved murder of his parents, which he witnessed as a teen, and many unresolved relationships with the central characters in his life. The ending will annoy those who like pat answers, but I guffawed with delight.
