Father ∫ Son
an email epistolary novel
Father ∫ Son is an epistolary novel written as email exchanges between a middle-aged father and his adult son. They have been estranged since the son’s birth. A surgeon soon facing retirement, the father discovers through his poet son a penchant for drawing—and then painting. The son reveals his struggle to leave lucrative film script re-writing to pursue his poetry. Both confide in each other relationship issues about a transgender girlfriend, infidelities, a homosexual romance, and the personal costs of their long lost-relationship.
