Ross Victory’s 4th novelette, “Father & Sun,” was released December 20, 2020, through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Rakuten Kobo. “Father & Sun” tells the story of Trey Amana, a forty-something, hardworking father of two that discovers an outrageous family secret when packing up his late father’s storage unit days before Christmas dinner.
Victory, opposed to euphemisms, divulges the charming and unpleasant impact of generational trauma and family secrets with astronomy as the anchoring metaphor; through this, readers realize not only Victory’s entertaining plot but discover a nuanced perspective on the Black family, masculinity, and bigotry.
Generational parallels are envisioned in “Father & Sun.” Raised on the internet, Generation Z and Millennials (Victory’s generation) have adapted a liberal set of attitudes and openness to privacy and information—notably through views toward interracial and same-sex marriage. Still, their parents, Baby Boomers, and the Silent Generation maintain a traditional approach to political issues and family life. As a black, bi man, Victory aims to destigmatize the barriers between generations over the world’s most popular holiday by discussing truths and past unhealed trauma that plague millions of families while illuminating the way to peace.
“Father & Sun” is a short 90-minute novelette that galvanizes readers into contemplation about how past generations have shaped current realities, speaking to the passing of the torch from father to son, what it means to be honorable, and the spiritual, emotional, and mental effect on heirs. “Father & Sun” is perfect for car rides, plane trips and book clubs. Its dramatic and amusing prose can open candid conversations that so many long to have. To connect with Victory for interviews, please contact Nicole Lufton.
