As high school students in Massachusetts, Nick and Cosmo make a solemn pact, pledging their unflinching loyalty to one another; little do the childhood friends know, though, life will soon test the strength of their bond in ways they can hardly imagine. Following a series of unfortunate incidents, Nick and Cosmo embark on challenging quests of spiritual enlightenment, exploring the depths of personal reflection as they struggle to reconcile their often thoughtless indiscretions with the fateful consequences that ensue. What results is a poignant odyssey of self-discovery that leaves neither of the two men the same again.
With a unique, compelling appeal, The Legend Of Cosmo And The Archangel is a charming story-within-a-story. Through lyrically crafted, vivid characters, author Joseph Kaufman presents a portrait of psychological opposites, with the Id-like Cosmo and Nick, Champion of the Superego, playing off one another in rhythmic, poetic fashion. Chronicling the ongoing evolution of the undying bond between two lifelong friends, Kaufman weaves an engrossing narrative complete with tragedy, introspection, triumph - and irrepressible wit - all designed to engage the reader's interest as he relates a winding tale of the metaphorical search for truth that compels us all.
Rife with timely, powerful themes, The Legend Of Cosmo And The Archangel is a moving story of the eternal search for spiritual fulfillment. An entertaining, highly enjoyable read.
