"Quinn's intention is to stimulate discussion, and he succeeds."
From the Publisher
Annotation The sequel to Quinn's earlier novel, "Ishmael", which won Ted Turner's $500,000 prize for a work of fiction that proposed the best solution to the problems of today's world. This book, like its predecessor, is essentially a lecture, by a wise and compassionate gorilla, on how to live.
Editors Note Winner of the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship, Daniel Quinns Ishmael is an underground bestseller and a testament for a burgeoning spiritual movement. Now Quinn presents an extraordinary sequel, a companion novel so startlingly original that even Ishmaels 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 Ishmaels 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.
Editors Note 2 The telepathic lowland gorilla featured in Quinn's award-winning book "Ishmael" returns in an extraordinary sequel, telling the story of 12-year-old Julie Gerchak, whose concerns about the future present a challenge that Ishmael is not quite sure he is prepared to handle.
