In this remarkable work of fiction, the first by its author, a troubled young man - adopted as a teenager - flees his New Haven home days after his twenty-seventh birthday and travels to London then Amsterdam and finally to Nice where he infiltrates and manipulates the lives of Robert and Nicole, a young French couple.
"European Son: a novella" by Barry Stewart Levy is a beautifully crafted tale of obsession, revenge and redemption. The narrator is a nameless, existential protagonist on a journey of self-discovery. By the end of the story, we learn the disturbing truth behind his sudden departure and how the dangerous, erotic triangle he creates on the French Riviera mirrors the one between his stepsister Ann, himself and Jay, their mutual object of desire.
This riveting tale of a young man searching for his sexual identity and his place in the world grips you from the start until it releases you with its heartbreaking but hopeful ending.
