After a failed attempt to make his place under the western sun, a young intellectual, a poet in the making, a young man from a small provincial riverside town spends his days working as a hotel receptionist, balancing between his despair, a feeling of being lost and a rich lover, thinking about his father, whom he had never established a relationship with and who is now lying in hospital, waiting for a possibly fatal diagnosis. The father-son relationship has always been ambivalent, and for long now isn’t what it is supposed to be; a shadow of the past looms above it and the son cannot grasp his emotions to either his father or the others around him. The father, on the other hand, can’t seem to comprehend his son and accept him for what he is.

Uncompromising, quick, with short but powerful chapters, full of profound emotions exchanging sex and death, fear and joy, His Father’s Son is a novel about the generation born in the nineties, worse off than their parents, except if their parents were not transition profiteers, about young people who are exceptionally sensitive and educated, but the society obstinately refuses to give them a chance. Dino Pešut in his second novel again proves to be the most powerful prose voice of his generation, an author who perfectly understands the moment he lives in and manages to channel it into an outstanding work of art.
