When Nate dies of cancer in Chapel Hill, a small group of his friends carry out his final wish by bringing his ashes to his favorite spot on the North Carolina coast. They run into trouble when they travel unawares into a coming hurricane. The travelers are saved by a mysterious man known only as “Son.” The novel combines action, as the would-be pilgrims battle the elements; mystery, as they try to understand the enigmatic Son; and tragedy, as they remember the final days of their friend. Another Son of Man was published posthumously, two years after McLaurin’s death in 2002.
