9780553379655: My Ishmael

Winner of the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship, Daniel Quinn's Ishmael is a bestseller and a testament for a burgeoning spiritual movement.  Now Quinn presents an extraordinary sequel, a companion novel so startlingly original that even Ishmael's most faithful readers will not predict its outcome....

When Ishmael places an advertisement for pupils with "an earnest desire to save the world," he does not expect a child to answer him.  But twelve-year-old Julie Gerchak is undaunted by Ishmael's reluctance to teach someone so young, and convinces him to take her on as his next student.  Ishmael knows he can't apply the same strategies with Julie that he used with his first pupil, Alan Lomax--nor can he hope for the same outcome.  But young Julie proves that she is ready to forge her own spiritual path--and arrive at her own destination.  And when the time comes to choose a pupil to carry out his greatest mission yet, Ishmael makes a daring decision--a choice that just might change the world.

From the Publisher :

Praise for the award-winning work of Daniel Quinn:

My Ishmael

"Enthralling, shocking, hope-filled, and utterly fearless, Quinn leads us deeper and deeper into the human heart, history and spirit. Thank God the Gorilla is Back!"
--Susan Chernak McElroy, Author of Animals as Teachers & Healers

Ishmael

"From now on I will divide the books I have read into two categories--the ones I read before Ishmael and those read after."
--Jim Britell, Whole Earth Review

"A thoughtful, fearlessly low-key novel about the role of our species on the planet...laid out for us with an originality and a clarity that few would deny."
--The New York Times Book Review

"As suspenseful, inventive, and socially urgent as any fiction or nonfiction book you are likely to read this or any other year."
--The Austin Chronicle

The Story Of B

"A compelling 'humantale' that will unglue, stun, shock, and rearrange everything you've learned and assume about Western civilization and our future."
--Paul Hawken, author of The Ecology of Commerce

"One of the most important storytellers of our age, Daniel Quinn, in The Story of B, continues the journey begun so beautifully with Ishmael."
--Peter M. Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline

From the Back Cover :

"Enthralling, shocking, hope-filled, and utterly fearless, Quinn leads us deeper and deeper into the human heart, history, and spirit. Thank God the gorilla is back! In My Ishmael, Quinn strikes out into entirely new territory, posing questions that will rock you on your heels, and providing tantalizing possibilities for a truly new world vision."
--Susan Chernak McElroy, author of Animals as Teachers & Healers

"Irresistible...[Quinn's] ideas are as thought-provoking as ever."
--Kirkus Reviews

Description du livre Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. État : New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The gorilla licked his lips - nervously, it seemed to me. I think we can safely say that I m not prepared to deal with the needs of a person your age. I think that can be safely said. Yes. You mean you give up. Is that what you re telling me? You want me to go away because you give up. Don t you think a twelve-year-old girl can have an earnest desire to save the world? I don t doubt it, he said, though the words sounded like they were pretty hard to get out. Then why won t you talk to me? Your ad in the paper said you need a pupil. Isn t that what it said? That s what it said. Well, you ve got one. Here I am. With these words we meet Julie Gerchak, one of the most engaging young heroes since Huckleberry Finn - and one of Ishmael s most challenging and rewarding disciples. Unable to justify turning her away, Ishmael accepts the daunting task of juggling two pupils of widely differing characters - one of whom (Julie) insists on remaining unknown to the other (Alan Lomax, known to the readers of Ishmael as the narrator of that book.) Julie is unquestionably bright (quite possibly brighter than Alan), but she s also shy of his educational background by ten years! This means Ishmael can by no means follow the same strategy with each - or expect the same outcome from each. Alan and Julie don t just take different routes with their simian mentor, they end up in very different places. But something else distinguishes Ishmael s relationship with Julie. When the infrastructure of his life begins to crumble, Ishmael must choose one of his students to entrust with a great secret and a great mission. And, surprisingly, his choice falls not on the older, more experienced student but onthe younger one. In revealing the mission and the secret entrusted to her, Julie pens a conclusion to the Ishmael saga that will raise cheers from his fans all around the world.
