Outskirts Press Announces the Release of New Literary FictionÂ—Parallels That Cross by Gary Graham
, July 02, 2020 )
In Parallels That Cross
, new literary fiction by Gary Graham, the stories of scientists Mica and Clay are told simultaneously in side-by-side chapters, giving the main characters equal and parallel page time. Set in the elfin forests and puna grasslands in Peru, along with quirky campus fun at several universities, this novel is rich with humor, imagery, philosophy, poetry and science—all wrapped up in a creative storytelling format. Parallels That Cross has been published by Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company.
This unconventional romance/adventure literary novel presents the parallel lives of Mica Van Hawken-Slade, an archeologist, and Clay Fuller, an ornithologist—characters who are independently and simultaneously resolving their sex-based relationship anxieties while searching in 1982 for extraordinary treasures hidden deep in the Peruvian wilderness. Mica is seeking an ancient city she theorizes was founded by women led by a princess daughter of Peru’s last reigning Inca ruler. Clay, working on his doctoral research on another side of the same mountain, is testing his new biodiversity model that predicts discovery of new avian species. Mica suffers from a lifelong self-doubt that she will turn out like her lesbian mother, while Clay is tormented by his own nightmare that he has become his philandering dad.
Packed with mesmerizing stories, breathtaking adventures into beautiful settings, complex intimacy and user-friendly science, Parallels That Cross narrates the fascinating parallel lives of Mica and Clay as they face unimaginable personal and professional challenges. They will face terrorists, waterfalls, catastrophes and psychiatrists—and ultimately, they must confront whether their lives are controlled by destiny or free will.
Parallels That Cross launches us into the worlds of ancient cultures, never-before-seen wildlife, parental and sex-based relationship anxieties and the fundamentals of love. The novel will be especially appealing to fans of Barbara Kingsolver, adventure and armchair travelers, and nature and archaeology enthusiasts.
A portion of the profits will be dedicated to protecting cloud and elfin forests in northern Peru, inspiration for much of the stunning imagery in the novel.
