The Antagonist by Lynn Coady

Judging a book by its cover: Coady's novel investigates how stereotypes shape people's self-perceptions — an oversize, hard-hitting hockey player is bound to be a thug, right? Plot notes: After living under the radar for 20 years, Rank discovers that the one person who knows what caused him to go off the grid wrote a tell-all novel about his disappearance. E-prose: In chapters composed of e-mailed rants that set the record straight, Rank writes a dramatic and funny confessional in reverse.
