Clark Calloway's Son Of My Hope is two books in one. Book one, "One Year In Amherst", is a coming-of-age story with a dash of teen romance and sentimentality, while Book two, "The City", takes place both before and after "Amherst". The "city" is the holy city, i.e., the New Jerusalem, the object of Cor's labor, love, and - more dangerously - mania and fanaticism, a mania and fanaticism that is exposed with tragic consequences when he returns home from college after five years of monk-like isolation to see not only his critical and judgmental father but his much changed girlfriend. "Boldly original" - so say the book jackets of most novels of the last ten years, not to mention movie blurbs. But Son Of My Hope really is original, a religious drama which nevertheless bucks every religious convention and whose world view, whether you agree with it or not, is unique and original.
