A NOVEL, by Andrés Cruciani
"I have a story for you."
So says a man—head shaved, an arm tattooed black. He goes by the name of Savage.
The story goes like this:
One day, Savage comes home to find his girlfriend, Sarah, crying, holding their shrieking daughter over a bath of steaming water.
That afternoon, Savage takes their money, their baby, and jumps on a bus. When he calls Sarah, she threatens to call the police.
"If you do, you will never see her again," he proclaims.
He begins a life on the lam. But is a life of hiding really the greatness Savage had always dreamed of?
THE FATHER is the story of a man kidnapping his own daughter to save her—but finding that he has lost himself. If you loved Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD and William Faulkner's ABSALOM ABSALOM!, you'll love THE FATHER.
