is at once hilarious and evocative, sexy and sublime, silly and
serious, epic and ephemeral—a hysterical parody of enlightenment
that becomes itself enlightened. Richly poetic, wonderfully paced,
persistent, intelligent, knowledgeable prose that remains somehow
always attentive and accessible. An immensely playful novel. A
working man’s John Barth. A romantic’s Tom Robbins. A journey to
be savored and a story to be finished. Set in a well-researched and
for me (a 58 year old Americanadian) nostalgic era, it has no expiry
date. This book will be as interesting and relevant a hundred years
from now as it is today and would’ve been thirty years ago when the
story takes place. I feel honored to have been asked to edit it.”

“Hey J.R. !
I finished reading your book , and it is absolutely fantastic !! The darker ending gives it more depth , and your characters, & descriptions of the environment are superb. Will there be a sequel ??
Your editor said it all…it is slyly humorous, yet with a real reverence for the spiritual quest. Bravo !!! Bravo !!!!!” ——–Sharon Miller, artist and former English teacher
