"An astounding book about dreaming and about dreams--dreams of God, dreams of falling, dreams of Russia and of China; dreams of death. Everything is in here: fish mandalas in the sky; Cathars on clifftops; angels on the streets of Warsaw; Castaneda and Gurdjieff and the I Ching; chakras and human sacrifices; popes and Nazis and President Bill Clinton. Reading it is pure delight--you never know what extraordinary image, mind-bending concept, or stunning
juxtaposition will come next. All is held together by a controlled and compelling narratorial voice brilliantly rendered into English by translator Victoria Miluch, who has perfectly captured Zelwan's heady mix of memory, spirituality, philosophy, and sheer psychic energy. A marvel!" - Bill Johnston, award winning translator of Pan Tadeusz.
