KIRKUS REVIEW

Dr. Deikman is a psychoanalyst who has found his way to Cultist Heaven. He's read his Freud, Jung, Adler, and the Bhagavad-Gita, and amalgamated them all in this parable-filled mish-mash that begins by extolling the virtues of Eastern Mystrician and somehow ends up advocating psychoanalysis as the way to find the real world. In a style reminiscent of the worst of Kahlil Gibran, he plods placidly on and on and on, until the reader is lulled into something that roughly approximates insulin shock instead of the inner peace that he never quite manages to tell us how to achieve.
