Art of Storytelling Coach and Editor Jon Sternfeld was the agent for T. Geronimo Johnson’s novel Hold It ‘Til It Hurts, which was nominated today for the PEN/Faulkner award. Here’s the novel blurb:

When Achilles Conroy and his brother Troy return from a tour of duty in Afghanistan, their white mother presents them with the key to their past: envelopes containing details about their respective birth parents. After Troy disappears, Achilles—always his brother’s keeper—embarks on a harrowing journey in search of Troy, an experience that will change him forever.

Heartbreaking, intimate, and at times disturbing, Hold It ’Til It Hurts is a modern-day odyssey through war, adventure, disaster, and love, and explores how people who do not define themselves by race make sense of a world that does.
