The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace
Author
Jeff Hobbs
Review
In this biography, Jeff Hobbs explores the trajectory of the too-brief life of his brilliant Yale (class of 2002) roommate, Robert Peace. Rob, who grew up impoverished in Orange, NJ, was the son of a hardworking mother dedicated to his education and of a father in jail. The book inspires many questions about who Rob Peace really was as a person and why he made the choices he did (and whether they were truly choices). This book is exceptionally compelling, interesting, and thought-provoking. It seems that an Ivy League education is no guarantee of a certain life path and that early life circumstances and associates can be equally influential.The New Haven/Yale aspects will be of much interest to local residents.
