The Bibliophile Excerpt :

When a father does everything in his power to live his life vicariously through his son’s life, the result is abject failure. Not only for the father but for the son. The Bibliophile is the story of a providential paradigm shift in thinking that produces an unbreachable divide between a zealous, overly ambitious, success driven, obnoxious, father and a compliant obsequious son. The story is written over time beginning with the great grandfather, a mysterious bibliophile in his own right, up to the Son Of Promise, God’s next All American, and his slave driving “Winning Is The Only Thing” father. Due to an injury that curtailed the father’s potential career in the NFL the father lives for one reason: to see to it that ‘at almost any cost’ his son will have a career as a professional football player. Unfortunately a “Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Super Bowl” and the result is a supernatural event that produces devastating consequences.
