Description

"When Oliver Bonds loses his toddler son and undergoes intense legal scrutiny over his involvement, grief engulfs him completely. His life is upended, costing Oliver his wife, home, and faith. Three years after his son's death, Oliver has gravitated to the fringes of society. Once a revered university professor, he now lives in a shack without electricity behind a nail salon and frequents the soup kitchen where he used to volunteer. It's only when befriended by Lyle, a bombastic, over-sexed con-artist with a passion for conspiracy theories, that Oliver begins to reengage with the world. Inspired by Lyle and a community of eccentrics, Oliver becomes convinced that the Earth is hollow and holds a true Eden. Desperate to find a place where he can escape his past, Oliver chases after the most unlikely of miracles. With unforgettable characters, wild imagery, and dark humor, Hollow explores the depths of doubt and hope, stretching past grief and into the space where we truly begin to heal"--
