Awakened Giant, Sleeping Spirit
A Novel by Kenny G. Down
Kenny G. Down's premiere work is a heartfelt, beautiful, sometimes startlingly painful exploration of the peaks and valleys of those who suffer from addiction - and one man's journey to both recovery and salvation.
Semi-autobiographical in nature, this fictional tale resounds with truth on every page. Anyone who has suffered from the pains of addiction themselves, or suffered alongside a loved one who has will experience new meaning and find new truths with a wide cast of characters.
