David A. Crossman is a modern-day polymath who - in common with polymaths throughout time - has yet to be sufficiently beguiled by any one sphere of endeavor to apply himself to it exclusively. As a result, he's a best-selling novelist, an award-winning lyricist and composer, a writer of short stories, screenplays, teleplays, poems, and children's books, a television producer/director (also award-winning), a video producer, radio/television talent, award-winning graphic, computer graphic artist, advertising copywriter, videographer, publisher, music producer, musician, singer, performer and ... well, you get the picture. He's shiftless - in all things but his devotion to Barbara his wife of...well, let's say over 35 years and leave it at that.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it's one of the most creatively written books I've ever read. The basic premise of the book is unusual and captivating enough, but throw in the 20 plus sub-stories within it, each of which is just as creative in its own right, and it left me not wanting to put the book down. Each of the sub-stories was so completely different in plot, tone, and style from the one that came before it that it was as though the book had been written by multiple authors. I was left to question what was real and what was not throughout the book -- in a wonderful, mysterious way. Crossman's command of the English language is enthralling and the details infused into the text left me not only seeing the people and places as if I were there, but they instilled in me the emotions, smells, and feels of the people and places, as well. The tale was cleverly woven such that I was kept guessing as to the outcome until the last few pages -- and I was not disappointed by that outcome. And underlying it all was an inspirational tale of a dark life struggling with transformation. Do yourself a favor and just read it!
