Anthony Caplan

Author Anthony Caplanabout this book: This is a book that i waited a long time to write, dealing with my childhood. It's told as a fictional story, but 99 percent of it actually happened. The only part that's fictional is that my mother in real life is very much alive and kicking. But it's about growing up in a family that fought all the time and how as a teenager i dealt with the pain through sports and friendship with fellow outsiders. The first half of the book is the world as seen through the eyes of a child, and it shuttles back and forth between South America and Long Island as the mother and father fight a custody battle that includes kidnapping their children back and forth. The second half of the book takes place at a boarding school in New England and involves the main character's attempts to deal with typical teenage anxieties as well as understand his parents and their problems.

I think the book does well with readers who are open minded and are looking for a view of a world that is different from theirs.

Latitudes - A Story of Coming Home is a coming of age story that takes the reader to the brink of a troubled child's adulthood. And it's about the mysterious path we each take in our individual lives of trying to heal and the influence and responsibility we have on and for each other.
