Boy in the Hole by Akiva Hersh

indie ebook cover

From an anti-other political climate comes a novel that gives voice to outcasts tyrannized by power.

Boy in the Hole is the gripping account of Jacob, a boy wrestling to understand himself, his family, and the world in which he lives as he grows up in the Deep South in the seventies.

Emerging from a family of sexual deviancy and alcoholism masked by religion and wealth, Jacob learns to define who he is but struggles to find the balance between faith and sexuality. To embrace his true identity, he must go on an exodus to face his demons and overcome the pressures to conform. But his parents' toxic beliefs and the messages of self-hate taught by religion and society could prove his undoing.

Will Jacob love himself despite the potential isolation? Or will he conform to the norms and settle for mediocrity—and a life in which he can never truly live?
