Author plumbs truth, memories and Ipswich

Ipswich Chronicle by Dan Mac Alpine

Matt Geiger remembers the shortest route to downtown Ipswich from his childhood home on Appleton Farms was the railroad tracks.

“And it was still a long walk,” Geiger, IHS Class of 1998, said.

That isolation provides the baseline for his first book, “Raised by Wolves and Other Stories,” a collection of columns and stories he’s written in his career as a journalist.

“We all have so much in common. You wouldn’t think it from the endless cavalcade of animosity and discord on the Internet, but we do,” observes author Matt Geiger as he prepares for the release of his debut book. “We all live, we all die, and we are all far more confused by the world around us than we like to admit.”

“I’m no more enlightened than anyone else, but I do try to at least admit that I have no idea what’s happening around me,” he adds.
