The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You

By Dorothy Bryant

Available

Description

The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You is part love story, part science fiction, at once Jungian myth and utopian allegory.

"Truly unforgettable "--San Francisco Chronicle

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.

"A masterful novel . . . a beautiful, symbolic journey of the soul, the journey of a serious dreamer."--Berkely Monthly

About the Author

Dorothy Bryant's novels and plays use a variety of settings, from the allegorical island of The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You to her own San Francisco Bay Area (Ella Price's Journal, Miss Giardino, Confessions of Madame Psyche), revolutionary ninenteenth-century France (Dear Master), and South America (Anita, Anita). Her underlying theme is always the same: the struggle of the human spirit to know and become itself.
