Creative Writing: A Thing Beyond Hope

For the last few years, I’ve been working on a coming-of-age novel. 

Now, at last, I’m getting a chance to publish it!


Here’s a quick blurb:
Caught between the pull of the crowd and a personal dream, Calloway is placed on a collision course with society. When he quits university and makes a plan to run away, even his best friend seems lost.

For three days, he finds himself in a world of dive bars, sex, poets and runaway teenagers, searching for a guide to show him the way to a meaningful life. 

Through Calloway, Joshua Krook has created a classic coming-of-age story, a powerful book that captures what it means to be young, restless and hungry for meaning.

“Here was my generation; lost of all hope, bereft of all ideas, struggling between a desire to be left alone, and a push by the crowd to be out in the crowd itself.”
