Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Daniel Quinn's novel Ishmael has become an underground bestseller with more than 500,000 copies in print and one of the most beloved novels of spiritual adventure ever published. Every reader of this transformative book can recite its opening invitation: "Teacher seeks pupil. Must have an earnest desire to save the world". A young man answers this "want ad" and discovers that the teacher is Ishmael, a telepathic lowland gorilla. What he never learns, however, is that he isn't Ishmael's only pupil. The other is twelve-year-old Julie Gerchak. "My Ishmael" is Julie's story of her encounter with one of the greatest teachers of the modern age.

Accepting Julie as his pupil is one thing; dealing with the challenge she represents is quite another. Ishmael soon realizes that adopting new methods means adopting new goals; the result is a far different journey for Julie, who becomes Ishmael's secret collaborator. In revealing the mission and the secret entrusted to her, Julie pens a conclusion to the Ishmael saga that has raised cheers from his fans all around the world.

Synopsis:

The telepathic lowland gorilla featured in Quinn's award-winning book "Ishmael" returns in an extraordinary sequel, telling the story of 12-year-old Julie Gerchak, whose concerns about the future present a challenge that Ishmael is not quite sure he is prepared to handle.
