Riassunto: Following the lives of a severely dysfunctional southern African-American family, Caesar Brunswick's debut novel focuses on the trials, struggles and triumphs of one Arthur Wilson. Victim to the repeated abuse of a psychologically challenged father, the young Wilson runs away from home in search of safe haven. Facing the realities of survival, Wilson finds himself engulfed in the dark recesses of Atlanta's darker side. Arrested for prostitution, young Wilson is forced to return home to his father's wrath. Dealing with the responsibilities of parenthood, an ailing mother and the challenges of academia, Wilson seeks nurture and direction from a self-appointed mentor, as he struggles to pull himself from the pitfalls of his troubled teen life.

Brunswick's gritty tale details the high school and college careers of an African-American teen as he wrestles with his sexual identity, struggles with academics and fights to provide for his young son. The story, told in narrative flashback by the protagonist, begins with the youth boarding a commercial bus as he runs sway from home at the age of fifteen. The bus journeys, totaling eight in number, are used to tell segmented experiences encountered by the young man. Desperately seeking the affection he believes denied him by his family, Wilson has multiple experiences with both men and women throughout the story before coming to terms with his sexuality.

Featuring thirteen original works of poetry by Nicole J. Niblack, "Journeys" masterfully addresses many of the elements of today's culture. Combining the tone of Niblack's classically patterned poetry with the issues of modern day America, Brunswick has produced a work of lasting impact truly worthy of global recognition. Incorporating the worlds of Music, Education, Family and Street-Life, there is something for everyone purged within the storyline. Journeys of a Tortured Soul is a new age "Coming Out" story.

Dall'editore: Written in a first person narrative, this is a sensitive accounting of a young man's journeys toward adulthood. Arthur Wilson, having been rejected and repeatedly abused by his father, sets out on one bus trip after another in an attempt to put himself through college and find a better way of life. Along the way, he is met with many interesting, and sometimes disturbing, obstacles that help to shape him from boy to man.

Caesar Brunswick is an exceptionally talented writer, completely captivating the attention and holding it throughout the entirety of the novel.
