Recent release “Driving Through Shaker Heights” from Page Publishing author Scott Jameson Sanders is both a coming-of-age tale and a tour of the United States. With its memorable narrative, it’s a story about the promise of youth, the power of love, and one man’s dream of freedom.
Scott Jameson Sanders, an independent businessperson and avid writer of songs, screenplays, and now books, has completed his new book “Driving Through Shaker Heights”: a gripping and potent tale where two young people must make choices between their own personal happiness and the good of everyone else.
Scott writes, “When I contemplated my future, I wanted to be a success at something, but I simply didn’t have a clue on what that something would be. In many ways, I was a typical high school senior. I lacked direction and purpose and figured college might help steer me to something that made sense for my life. I admired many of my peers at Shaker, who somehow did know what they wanted to do when they grew up. Somehow, even at the young age of seventeen, they knew. From doctors to lawyers to inventers to writers to musicians, there was no lack of smart, talented people in my school. I just wasn’t one of them.
“To illustrate this point, here is an example of my brain problems. It was a beautiful summer day in Cleveland, Ohio, and the city’s professional baseball team was playing a doubleheader down at the old (awful, smelly, and cavernous) Municipal Stadium. The first game was scheduled for 1:00 p.m., and the next game would follow thirty minutes after the first one finished. No one really cared about the outcomes as the Indians were terrible in those days, and so the games were mostly just a poor excuse to drink beer. My good friend, Ben Goldman, was offered the luxury loge for this event, and he invited me to come along. He also allowed me to bring a date. I asked a sixteen-year-old girl named Mandy from my school, and she agreed to go. I’m pretty sure she still regrets that decision.”
Published by Page Publishing, Scott Jameson Sanders’s funny, poignant, and ultimately deeply moving tale is a coming-of-age story about a young man, Sean Stevens, who struggles to find his way in life. Propelled by a unique narrative voice, “Driving Through Shaker Heights” is a compelling tale of one youth’s journey through the trials of college and the challenges of adulthood. It’s set in the 1980s and explores the many facets of college life, from the excitement of a new environment to the frustration of underperforming and feeling out of place.
