Tom Grattan, 7th and 8th Grade English Teacher

7th and 8th grade English teacher Tom Grattan recently published his first novel, The Recent East. Moving through decades and between the thoughts and lives of several characters, the novel tells the story of a mother and two teens as they navigate a new life in East Germany.  In a recent review, The New York Times called the book "a wonderful, immersive debut novel . . . in [Thomas] Grattan’s hands, life’s joys are magnetic." Listen to an interview with Tom about The Recent East on WNYC's "All of It."
