Third Wish

Overview

In fairy tales, the third wish is the last one left when the first wish was foolish, and the second wish was used to undo the first wish. Now the remaining wish must be used wisely and well--with the help of co-conspirators. The main thread of Third Wish--like Ariadne’s string guiding Theseus into the labyrinth with the Minotaur--begins at a table on a terrace on the Greek Island of Crete, winds its way into the center and back out to the same table, passing through Greece, Japan, France, England, and Seattle. Its main characters are Alice, Max-Pol, Aleko, Wonko, Zenkichi, Polydora, Alice-Alice, and Dog. Woven into the fabric of the novel are cultural history, art, philosophy, archeology, poetry, theater and music. The mode of the novel is contained in the words Slowly, Surprise, and Witness. More than anything else, Third Wish is a long love story--not in the usual sense--but the story of people who love life and will go to great lengths to find a flourishing way onward.

    This may be the very best thing I have ever read! The characters

    This may be the very best thing I have ever read!
    The characters are quirky and charming, the settings are enchanting. I was sorry when it ended. It inspired our recent trip to Crete to see places described in the book. It's definitely not your standard, run of the mill novel about ordinary people. These are extraordinary people (wish I could meet them) with a creative approach to life.
