The Testimony of Taliesin Jones




A lyrical and acutely perceptive coming-of-age tale about faith, doubt and growing up, from the accalimed author of The Aftermath

Taliesin Jones is a boy on the brink of adulthood, faced for the first time with life's biggest questions.

Taliesin's life is falling apart: his mother has run off with her hairdresser, his father's temper is out of control and his brother has been ominously mute for weeks. Even more distressing than Taliesin's dysfunctional family are his classmates' claims that God does not exist. Deeply troubled by life's uncertainty, the boy seeks answers in the unlikely figure of Billy Evans, an old man with an exceptional - possibly even miraculous - talent.

The Testimony of Taliesin Jones is an extraordinary novel, exploring the space between childhood and adulthood, between belief and doubt.
