The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You by Dorothy Bryant
The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You

artifitz44, September 5, 2011

Several years ago when I first opened a small used book store I was told by a customer that this was the best book he had ever read. I sent for used copies and have sold several based on this recommendation. I have long been planning to read it myself and today, down in bed icing a bad knee I finally read it all in one day. I was not disappointed! It is most often called a 'new age fantasy' and was originally published under the title The Comforter, but that title does not make sense to me after reading it. The book can be read on many different levels. You never know the name of the main character but what you learn of the transformation of his life is profound. The author uses very broad spiritual principles to show us humans learning to connect with their higher selves. It is a story of a spiritual journey without even a hint of 'preaching'.

Couch: A Novel by Benjamin Parzybok
Couch: A Novel

Tom Robbins for Twenty-Somethings and set in Portland (until the couch sets sail for South America). Quirky and surreal.

An amazing book. Members of my family are still discussing which ending we belive in several years after reading it.
