Product Overview

Alvin Schwartz takes the path without form, an amazing personal journey in the company of Hawaiian kahunas, quantum physicists, and superheroes. As Schwartz's lifelong remembrance of synchrony, inspiration, accident, and magic unfolds, it puts into vivid clarity the saving grace that inhabits every moment of our lives. The author travels as a stranger in a strange land, whose greatest oddity is that this land is our own.

Author Info
Alvin Schwartz
Alvin Schwartz's early works for children focused on the American political system and social issues. With 1972's A TWISTER OF TWISTS, A TANGLER OF TONGUES, his first collection of folklore for children, Schwartz's career found a new direction. Schwartz is perhaps best known for his wildly popular collections of ghost stories such as SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Using Superman as an example of the nonlocality of quantum physics, a profound examination of the shifting nature of identity and reality analyzes the ways thought is embodied and how it takes on a life of its own. Reprint.
