Dasha, by D. F. Whipple, tells the story of a life derailed, but even down-and-out, living on humanity’s edge, a man can find magic and even love. Through the use of dreams, contemporary narrative, and fantasy, Whipple’s lyrical storytelling brings hope, inspiration, and a message that love’s expectations are not of us, but for us, and that life reveals its magic in forms and in places we least expect. Grappling with the vicissitudes of modern art, the fickle publishing industry, tempestuous prima donnas, and caddy ex-girlfriends, Whipple’s Dasha tells the endearing, hard-luck tale of a man destined to come full-circle back to himself; even if that circle has a few unexpected chinks. Told with wit, mystery, and in a narrative style sure to charm, Dasha teaches an inspirational lesson for modern times that leaves readers feeling good about love and its possibilities; despite the chinks.
