Till Human Voices Wake Us

Till Human Voices Wake Us is my fourth novel, published by Bantam Spectra in July, 2007.

Like the title implies, this book is about waking up – discovering who we were, who we are, and finally who we want to be. That's not always easy, especially if you happen to have lost part of your self in an accident, or are losing yourself to an incurable disease. Where do you go for help? Who do you go to? What life do you choose, and what one(s) do you let go of? If our main task in life is to give birth to ourself, which past leads to a future worth living and which one is a psychological or spiritual dead-end?
