When I die I hope my obituary sounds something like this book review…

by Joy Monger


A story that has been described as “…a kind of epiphanically catastrophic beatnik-South American Lord of the Rings…”

A sprawling 600 page adventure that takes place over 20 years in Mexico, Paris, Tel Aviv, Spain, and Chile.

A book that deals with the difficulty of sustaining the hopes of youth.

A wild puzzle that reads like Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

A modern-day Quixotic tale about the youth and the twilight of a group of passionate poets who believe in the redemptive powers of literature.

A darn good book…I read it in Mexico…now it smells like sunscreen…I want to start it again but I’m afraid I’ll get sand in my bed.
