We Begin Our Ascent
We Begin Our Ascent. Sol is a professional cyclist and his wife, Liz, works in a research lab. They are new parents and face an array of challenges as Sol rides in Le Tour de France and stumbles into doping. Reed explores a theme of loyalty, Sol to the team, and Liz and Sol to each other. Reed’s writing is top-notch, and you need not be a cycling fan to appreciate this novel. Anyone who has faced one’s own ambition and goals will appreciate the ways in which Reed explores competition and the consequences of a powerful desire to win.
