New Novel Explores the Psyche of a Troubled Schoolboy A Boyish God


Author and retired psychiatrist/psychoanalyst, Peter Alan Olsson is pleased to announce the release of his new novel, A Boyish God. Peter wants readers to walk the fine line between what he believes is crazy and brilliant in this tour de force novel.

Concord, NH, June 05, 2013 --(PR.com)-- A Boyish God is a troubling novel with deep insights. According to author Peter Alan Olsson, “I was jolted to my core when I learned that a college friend’s son died at the Rev. Jim Jones’ side at Jonestown. Two books and over 30 years later, I am still searching for answers… especially about terror prevention.”

This fascinating yet terrifying book probes into the psyche of a schoolboy who deeply needs therapy. On the playground of Saint Thomas Moore School in Houston, Sister Agnes hears young Will Powers’ fiery funeral sermon for a dead bird. At the insistence of his teachers, Will reluctantly stops his explosive eulogy. Will’s parents have apparently turned their back on their son and won’t return the school’s calls.

The school psychologist turns for help to a trusted psychiatrist friend, who is able to delve into Will’s perspective and what is driving him. But can this troubled boy be helped? The novel is disturbing, but deeply necessary. Perhaps the Rev. Jim Jones at one time was also considered A Boyish God.

A Boyish God is available in print and ebook format.
