Narrator: Dion Graham.
Summary, etc.:
"Both lyrical and powerful, Grimes' unusual novel is mediation on faith and father-son relationships ... Grimes' commanding metaphors, authoritative style and complex characterizations are uniquely compelling."-Publisher's Weekly, starred review "The elemental connections and the hope ("You made it / in the end / and so will I') will speak to a wide audience."-Booklist, starred review A guy whose father ripped his heart out too. Me and you, Ishmael, we're brothers, two dark sons. Betrayed, lost, and isolated, the perspectives of two teenage boys-modern-day Sam and biblical Ishmael-unite over millennia to illustrate the power of forgiveness.
