Epic book, 'Rising of the Son', explores father-son relationship

 
BRISTOL, U.K. - Feb. 12, 2020 - PRLog -- Told from alternating points of view, Jonno and James expound the story of their journey from home to Lima, through Huarez and ultimately to the peak of Casharaju in the Cordillera Huayhuash mountain range in Peru. The narrative is intercepted by occasional vignettes from people they meet along the way, who provide a birds eye view of their developing relationship and of the cultural context of Peru itself. Written almost in the form of diary entries, the reader is party to the innermost thoughts of each character, with the surrounding dialogue showing what is being left unsaid between them.

Together, in body if not in mind, Jonno and James ascend the Casharaju peak until the adventure hits disaster and Jonno has to step up and take the lead to try and save his father.

This coming of age book attempts to deal with themes of the father-son dynamic, what it means to be a man, life in a developing country, women's rights, being an outsider, the problematic way in how we are perceived by others, what is personal truth and what it ultimately means to be successful.
