From the Publisher :

"When Bantam Books first published Ishmael, a cult was born. Winner of the Turner Tomorrow Award -- a prize for fiction that offered solutions to global problems -- it was an utterly unique story that earned raves from readers and critics alike. By the time the mass market paperback edition of this novel was published last year, word was spreading like wildfire. Now this irresistible novel of a spiritual adventure is available in trade paperback for the first time ever. The narrator of this extraordinary tale is a man in search of truth. He answers an ad in a local newspaper from a teacher looking for serious pupils only to find himself alone in an abandonded office with a full-grown gorilla who is nibbling delicately on a slender branch. "you are the teacher?" he asks, incredulously. "I am the teacher," the gorilla replies. Ishmael is a creature of immense wisdom and he has a story to tell.... As readers everywhere seek out books that offer answers to their burning questions about spirituality, the popularity of this remarkable novel continues to grow at an astounding pace.

"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.

"Wonderfully eamest and engaging. Think of Robert Pirsig in Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance or B.F. Skinner in Walden Two." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review.

Daniel Quinn lives in Austin, Texas.

From the Inside Flap :

Teacher Seeks Pupil.

Must have an earnest desire to save the world. Apply in person.

It was just a three-line ad in the personals section, but it launched the adventure of a lifetime.

Ishmael

So begins Ishmael, an utterly unique and captivating spiritual adventure, which redefines what it is to be human. And thus, we are introduced to Ishmael, a creature of immense wisdom. He has a story to tell, one that no human being has ever heard before. It is the story of man's place in the grand scheme, and it begins at the birth of time. This history of the world has never appeared in any schoolbook. "Does the earth belong to man?" Ishmael asks. "Or does man belong to the earth?"

Author Daniel Quinn is the first winner of the prestigious Turner Tomorrow Fellowship, awarded for fiction providing creative and positive solutions to global problems. Sly, witty, and profound, Ishmael is a tour de force of the mind and spirit -- an extraordinary intellectual adventure that listeners will never forget.
