Part coming of age, this extraordinary novel explores human nature through a young man’s search for a lost friend.
Divided into three parts—fire, earth, and wind—this novel follows Walter from his rural adolescence through his adult years as he leaves his known world for the chaos and complexity of Rome. Wrestling with difficult family relationships and outgrowing childhood friendships, Walter finds himself in the end searching for a long-lost friend and the certainty he once knew.
A story about accepting life’s disappointments in love, marriage, family, friendship and in dealing with expectations from others and expectations of ourself.
