Hold It ‘Til It Hurts

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.
