Overview

Time is an infinite circle. Beautiful, dotted with every moment, every remembrance, every joy and every pain. On that circle, in its gorgeous folds and colorful portraits, among its mysteries and its horrors, we stop for an instant to survey the breath of a city. In that city our eye is caught by a man. An indigent. An alcoholic by the looks of him, sitting in a dumpster eating God-knows-what. He will soon be dead, but before that moment of passing a bit farther down this ribbon we call time, he will rise higher than the stars.

I am Anselm, and I have been given the command, "Raise him out of the ashes of his life." But how, you may ask, am I to accomplish such a task? Look at him. Filthy, muttering in his customary drunken condition. And yet I see a spark in him-a spark that I will make into a flame. I also see a young woman nearby who knows nothing of his pitiful life, but soon enough she will. In a moment, inches away on this ribbon, he will meet her. We shall see just how strong love really is. Thus will begin the redemption of Marvin Fuster.

And so we begin his miraculous story. It is evening...

The Redemption of Marvin Fuster is a diamond in the rough.  I know it can be hard to find decent indie authors out there in the ever growing world of self-published books; however, Patrick Sean Lee is a talented writer with an imagination to match!   Marvin Fuster is one of the most complex, hilarious, pathetic, brilliant, oblivious, disgusting and beautiful characters I have ever come across in fiction.  I want to KNOW Marvin - I want to hang out with him, laugh with him, read with him, drink with him!   He's one of those characters that gets into your head and stay there.  This book is about love and loss, but in a round about sort of way.   There's also bucket loads of science which I LOVED.  Such a smart book, you can't even believe the author isn't already a best seller!   I highly recommend this book to everyone - you'll never look at a homeless man the same way again!
