Local writer Edwin Litts announced his new coming-of-age novella, Adam’s Roads, which is now available for purchase on Amazon and other retailers through Atmosphere Press.
Those eternal seconds, when that first wonderful eye contact is established: Wow! Is there anything more hopeful than that?
Late out of the gate with starting college and a career, the now determined but insecure Adam’s eyes happen upon the most beautiful Mary Bellemore. Oh, was her raven dark hair so rich and abundant, her stature confident and sure. She would be the young woman for him, Adam decides. Surely his strive to succeed and improve will get her attention. He needs to get busy now in that quest. Adam has to get just perfect for her. She is worth that!
Your eyes are indeed beautiful Mary. Hopefully soon, I will get the courage to walk over to you. You will see someday that I am as confident and honest as you.
In Edwin Litts’ engaging ‘Adam’s Roads’, we encounter an utterly readable adventure, and we’ll be carried along as we witness a coming of age for the young Mr. Adam Bell.
Edwin Litts has found retirement to be the perfect time to begin creative writing. He considers it an asset to draw upon such a wealth of characters and experiences his years working and teaching have offered. Recently, his flash fiction and poetry have been published. Ed earned his MS Ed from The College of Saint Rose, 1983. He is thankful for the simple things in life; savoring a good cup of morning coffee or a slice of evening chocolate cake.
Adam’s Roads is a story highly recommended as an alternative road trip and coming of age journey for modern readers who live within the confines of social expectation and emotional assumptions. It will lead this audience out of the box with an unexpected narrative highly recommended for literary collections. Ideally, Adam’s Roads should appear alongside such books as (and be read concurrently with) Catcher in the Rye and other coming-of-age classics.
