#LiteraryFiction: In Search of Sticks
by Randy Kaneen
(Victoria, B.C. Canada)
In Search of Sticks simultaneously challenges the intellect while surfacing raw emotional response. James, by the standards one generally uses to measure a life, is accomplished. Still, he twists.
What if, in the final analysis, it ends up being as much about that which wasn’t done rather than just what was acted upon? Paths are chosen. Steps are taken.
A Parallel story unfolds—Hope’s African existence. It was emphatically stated that “God does not have favorites.” But is this true?
A picture is painted and its canvas is littered with the likenesses of disease and poverty and the images of those trapped in the geography of violence. Despite the forms of tragedy that present themselves, this story is full of hope. The victories are told in the small tales and the sheer numbers who do not sell their souls.
In Search of Sticks is about some who need and those who choose to help. The narrative, with its North American and Developing World settings, may not, on first glance, specifically relate to the goals of your society but I believe this is your story. This novel speaks to anyone who has seen or experienced injustice and to those who have made personal sacrifices in order to right a wrong.
Adjectives used to describe the reading experience include:
"Compelling" "Powerful" "Haunting" "Stunningly beautiful".
