Great God Pan, The
Jamie's life in Brooklyn seems just fine: a beautiful girlfriend, a budding journalism career, and parents who live just far enough away. But when a possible childhood trauma comes to light, lives are thrown into a tailspin. Unsettling and deeply compassionate, the Great God Pan tells the intimate tale of what is lost and won when a hidden truth is unloosed into the world.
