John M. Donovan’s The Rocheville Devil is about a man who tries to reclaim his childhood innocence by moving into his abandoned elementary school building and reliving his happiest memories. John M Donovan has taken his readers through a year at an all-male college and six years in the life of a young man trying to break out of his parent-pleasing groove. With his latest novel, The Rocheville Devil, Donovan goes deep into the mind of a man who secretly takes up residence in his abandoned grade school building. Donovan uses crisp dialogue and easy-flowing narrative to tell stories with a Midwestern sensibility and universal themes. A native Hoosier, he now lives in Ankeny, Iowa.
