A thirteen-old boy becomes obsessed with the Hereafter; develops a romance with death. Mom, two young siblings and he immigrated to Canada. The boy took a job three days after they settled in a west-end apartment. Fifteen clips take you on a journey; you don’t know if you are watching a screen or reading off a page; ten kismets combination of prose and verse tell a story of how a boy became a man; sacrificed schools to support a small family but continued a personal romance with death.
Son and father play the third voice, death the abstract guest and the romantic half in the story. The son follows the father with a stencil. The novel started half a century ago in a small Lebanese village, folded the last page in Ottawa after sixty-eight years. The story could fool your eyes as each page resembles a small movie screen. Real life and fiction in this style of writing vary by a hair.
