Here’s the back cover blurb:
Where do you turn when life’s basic tenets become suspect? Such is the dilemma confronting Jonathan Brewster, a middle aged money manager from Boston, after his “chance” meeting with the Haitian dwarf, Zor.
Forced into a series of intense debates regarding negative ch’i, emotional additions, neuron networks, placebos, vipassana meditation, the collective unconscious, laws of attraction, sub-atomic entanglement, Nietzsche, metta, God and happiness; John is reluctantly drawn to a new reality.
Rising above his crisis of conscience he restructures his life for the greater good, only to be challenged by the ultimate betrayalIf I had met Zor in a bar, I would have run the opposite direction. Not because he’s a dwarf. Because he talks philosophy and spirituality and science, stuff I haven’t pondered or debated since college. Having said that, it was interesting to be the third-party reading their debates and discussions. For the most part, I kept up.
Brewster has a life outside of the bar and Zor. He has a wife and a job, but it is those meetings in the bar that bring him to life. And it is Zor who makes him examine his life. These discussions take him to the brink of everything: his life, his marriage, his job.
Hel-of-a-Writer because J.B. has written an interesting, intriguing, and intense book.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~FTC Disclaimer: The author sent me Zor. (The book, not the Haitian dwarf.) That did not influence my review (getting the free book, not Zor - and when I say, Zor, I mean the dwarf, not the book). Okay, if this disclaimer makes sense to you, then you will understand the book and you should get a copy.
