Amazon Reader Verified Reviews:
"This is, bar none, my favorite book in the world… If I were on a desert island, this is one book I would hope to have at my side…. It's not a novel, but a treatise on loneliness. Sounds dreary but, trust me, it's extraordinary. It'll warm your heart."

"Reading it was a transcendent experience that gave me what I believe was my first awareness of the strength and beauty of self-connection and the joy of solitude. "

Available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indie book stores.
