In A Hole In The Wind, Colby Fowler's drunken mother scratches blood tracks into his face just because he tries to feed her. Two boys on his bike team make him feel like a freak. They bully him on training rides and talk through him like he doesn't exist. A city bus crushes his coach to death and then drags the man a hundred meters on his face. Refusing to let rabid bike racers sully the honor of the only person who ever made him feel wanted and alive, Fowler awakens during his coach's memorial competition to the sanity of patience and his own self-worth. Carl S. Horner evokes the kind of loneliness that can ravage human confidence--that can drive a person to confusion, to nightmarish frustration, to extreme and desperate behavior, even thoughts of suicide.About the Author:
