In this novel, Christopher Beha ’02 takes data journalist Sam Waxworth, a man who correctly predicted the twists and turns of the 2008 election, and integrates him with the Doyles, a family affected by the financial crisis, wartime injuries, and a host of other problems. The Index of Self-Destructive Acts (Tin House Books) tells a fresh tale of generational decline and growth that will lead us to a new kind of society.
