Breaking Young Divinities is a candid and spiritual coming-of-age tale about a boy who grows up in the housing projects of 1980s Toronto and comes to grips with young adulthood in the 1990s.
He lives a sheltered childhood until high school, where he meets Jen, a mysteriously troubled young woman. She introduces him to his first tastes of passion, adventure, and sex.
In one tragic night, his world is turned upside down by an event that sends him on a misguided quest to come to terms with the world, with the God that he feels has abandoned him, and with the limitations of being human.
Rick Talbot is a person who likes to think about the "big questions" in life. Questions like, is there a God, what does it mean to be human, and does it even matter. He likes to work through his ideas by writing fiction. Rick lives in Toronto with his wife and a little black & white dog.
