LAKSHMI and the
RIVER OF TRUTH
A Fairy Tale for Adults, by Paul Chasman
“Find the River of Truth,” said Virtuous Liar. Heeding his admonition, Lakshmi packed a few provisions, bid farewell to her friends from The Book of Bob, climbed into her little boat, and “much like a more illustrious literary character in a more greatly acclaimed sequel, Lakshmi Jackson lit out.”
Join Lakshmi on her epic quest as she checks into the Hospital for the Ironically Challenged; sleeps in Metaphor Hotel; encounters upside-down people in an up- side-down world; and is befriended by a very special talking dog.
THE BOOK OF BOB
“In the beginning, Bob didn’t plant to start a religion, it just happened.”
So begins the heroic journey of Bob, who, on his fiftieth birthday, finds himself wifeless, childless, and conversing with his dog. Soon God will talk to Bob, too. He will order Bob to take dictation for His new book. God will call Bob “Son.” Bob will call Him “Dad.”
