In Río Ganges, David Theis depicts in vivid, visual terms the confusion and pain that a father's desertion can create throughout a young man's life. Adrift in the landscape of Mexico--a place of beauty, violence and mystery--Theis' protagonist, a young Texan who has moved to Mexico with his unfaithful wife, struggles to surmount a family tradition of fatherly abandonment, as he strives to reclaim the children he loves so fiercely. Complex and moving, spiked with eccentric characters and exotic symbols, Río Ganges reminds the reader in unforgettable images of love's redemptive power and of the way children can require us to live.
