Acclaimed author of “An Arsonist’s Guide to Writer’s Homes in New England,” Brock Clarke’s “Where Are You, Calvin Bledsoe?” is a novel about grabbing life, and holding on—wherever it may take you. Calvin Bledsoe’s journey begins at the funeral of his domineering mother when a mysterious aunt whisks him off to Europe for a grand adventure. Facing a menagerie of antiquities thieves, secret agents, and religious fanatics, it soon becomes apparent Aunt Beatrice’s clandestine behavior is leading Calvin into danger. Inspired by Graham Greene’s classic “Travels with My Aunt,” “Where are You, Calvin Bledsoe?” is a quirky, touching tale of an ordinary man on an absurdly extraordinary adventure.
