Publisher Comments:

art love story, part utopian fantasy, part spiritual fable, The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You is "a beautiful, symbolic journey of the soul" (Berkeley Monthly). Into the world of the Ata comes a desperate man, running from a fast life of fame and fortune, drugs and crime. He is led by the kin of Ata on a spiritual journey that, sooner or later, we all must take.

Synopsis:

The kin of Ata live only for the dream. Their work, their art, their love are designed in and by their dreams, and their only aim is to dream higher dreams. Into the world of Ata comes a desperate man, who is first subdued and then led on the spiritual journey that, sooner or later, all of us must make. The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You is part love story, part science fiction, at once Jungian myth and utopian allegory.

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'.
