Unaccustomed to any semblance of a stable family life, he is fast to realize that his notorious criminal parents are driven by sheer violence and mayhem. Though his most cherished pastime is listening to his father tell tall, unpredictable tales, Marcus secretly yearns for any acknowledgment of love from his monstrous mother. But banks and roadside diners aren’t going to rob themselves. And Mom appears to be the brains of this villainous operation that keeps the long arm of the law always three steps behind. So she’s kinda busy.
Africa, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s:

But the one animal he can not best is the ferocious lion within. In the prime of his life, he finds himself strapped with an orphan baby of his own. Marcus, acting as both brother and father to the growing boy, must protect him from the nutty, imperceptible call of nature and shield him from the lucid lure of human contact.
The lines between reality and fantasy blur as Marcus Fox, an unlikely, unreliable narrator navigates his life’s most penetrating memories. Recalling tragedy, farcical comedy, and insanity, Marcus paints his unbelievable story with all the shades of gray available in his cosmos.
