About the Author
Michael Boylan is the Chair of Philosophy, Theology, and Religious Studies at Marymount University. He is also the author of A Just Society (2004), Ethics Across the Curriculum: A Practice-Based Approach (2003, with James A. Donahue), and Basic Ethics (2000). He received his Ph.D. from University of Chicago.
"[Boylan] tries to present a philosophical worldview through the characters, actions, and events of his novel. He wants to show us a worldview in its experienced development and not just say that such and such is the case ... [A] brief summary of the action does not do justice to the richness of the story and the fun provided by the humorous characters that Michael encounters on his path toward enlightenment. They provide surprises and laughter along the way."
