Kip, a New York jazz pianist whose career was cut short by a neurological disease, returns from a failed suicide attempt with a vivid, detailed memory of his journey through the afterlife. Resembling the world as he knows it, but unlimited in space and time, it’s unlike any eternity he has contemplated. Its residents are those who choose not to reincarnate, which would erase all memory of who they once were.

Now Kip has a quest: to find his beloved Lucy, a yoga teacher who shared his apartment for years but died of leukemia before he took his own life. Is she still here? Has she waited for him, or “gone back” to become someone else? In his odyssey across centuries and locales (Istanbul to the Marquesas Islands, India to Oklahoma to New Guinea) to find her, Kip is guided by Walt Whitman, who urges him to write this memoir on his return.

    " Fortunately, I purchased this for $.99 on Amazon. The story had a great start, then puttered down endless roads of boredom and dead ends. The author had a great idea, but squandered it by not bringing the story to it's full potential. "

    " Read this book quickly and really enjoyed it. The end surprised me though. Definitely a must read! "

    " I wasn't able to give myself fully to this book for a good long while because I couldn't be sure where the author was headed. Once I reached the final chapter, I couldn't wait to read the book again. "

    " Mixed feelings on this book...it's a fun and inventive concept for the afterlife, and the story is told with some humor and complex, sympathetic characters. Yet, I felt like I was cooling my heels and getting increasingly frustrated waiting for the two central mysteries to unfold while the character nattered on about his travels. It was almost great, but reading it felt like standing in line for a carnival ride for much of the book. "
