Book Summary

Set in the 1990s, TORPOR tells the story of a man searching for his father — and coming to terms with his own identity in the process. At 27-years-old, Peter — or is it Pedro? — is about to wake up from prolonged emotional hibernation to discover what really makes him tick. Follow him on his journey from L.A. to Phoenix to the tropical, mosquito-brined coast of Mexico — an oh-so-human departure from numb suffering into the fearless terrain of wild awakening.

TORPOR: Though the Heart is Warm explores themes of identity, self-deception, father-son confusions and spells we inadvertently allow family to imprint on us — spells we must learn to break.
