Susanna Godoy Lohse is the author of three other books, "Miss Kitty," "Handling Boys," and "The Karma of Mao." She is also an award-winning screenwriter, having won a Gold Remi Award at WorldFest International Film Festival for her adaptation of "The Peerless Dulcinea."
The Karma of Mao is a devastating critique of socialism and Marxism through the eyes of a longtime Buddhist, and award-winning author. Karl Marx and the Buddha each came up with very different solutions for the world's ills. In theory, Marxism, and/or socialism seem to be equitable systems of government, but in the end, karma runs all over the Marxist dogma.
Retro is the new radical when it comes to the relevance of old-fashioned advice on boy-girl relationships in a new age. Learn from the mistakes of older generations of women who didn’t follow the advice of their mothers and grandmothers, and how they destroyed their chances at finding true love. Be the kind of girl for whom a boy would go out into the world and slay dragons.
The screenplay adaptation (unproduced) of this book has already won a Gold Award at the WorldFest International Film Festival.
