About the Author
"Lababidi is extremely generous with his attention in this eclectic collection of essays, interviews, poems, and aphorisms, covering everything from Omar Sharif to Sufi mysticism. In Revolutions, Lababidi converses with readers about that rarest and purest expression of the human spirit: the creative mind at work."
--James Geary, author of Wit's End and Geary's Guide to The World's Great Aphorists
"Revolutions of the Heart is a warm, intelligent, thought-provoking work of what we might call comparative spirituality, or spiritual lit crit. . . . Hovering over a wide range of topics, from the poet Rimbaud and the novelist John Banville, to the political ambitions of Marianne Williamson and the religious journey of C. S. Lewis--with thoughtful reflections of Sufism, the lost art of conversation, the inspiring power of blogging, Zen, cults, and much else along the way--Lababidi speaks in a voice all his own: personal, engaged, highly literate, and wholly entertaining."
--Gary Lachman, founding member of the rock group Blondie and author of more than a dozen books on philosophical and mystical ideas
"Yahia Lababidi stands you at the crossroads of literature, culture, and spirituality and shares the view in ways which are both stunningly telescopic and fascinatingly microscopic. Either way, it is breathtaking."
--Lee Weissman, Director of Community Engagement, Institute of Jewish Muslim Action, and interfaith activist
"Revolutions of the Heart, a stunning collection of essays and aphorisms--essays about aphorisms, aphorisms about the essay--thrills me from head to heart."
--Paul Holdengraber, Founding Director, The Onassis Center for Dialogue, Los Angeles, and renowned interviewer and curator
