A Novel in Pieces
A naked boy wanders alone through a divided land carrying rocks, and seeks refuge in a cave below a hidden monastery in the mountains. A middle-aged man returns to the home of his youth in Lebanon, to a cave where he confronts a thief with a camera and protects a sacred, centuries-old piece of art. Months later, carrying the treasured face in his briefcase, the photographer faces the utter loss of all he has hoped for. Three stories. Three men. One image: a timeless work of art. The Image is a profound and compelling collection of linked short stories about faith, hope, belonging, and the search for meaning within a holy land.
