I consider this short novel a fable of sorts. So much rich dialogue and spirituality here. I think there is a lesson to be learned about the role of parents and their need to be individuals: to also be in love, to also be reckless. The common roles assigned to children and parents get turned around here. The sages are the children and the meek are the adults. And there are full days of conversation here… Won’t you pick up a copy and join my discussion?
