“You’re On the Road finding The Power of Now with The Drunken Tourist”
New York Press book review
From Los Angeles to Prague, throughout Europe and New York, with a bottle in one hand and The Urantia Book in the other, The Drunken Tourist continues to translate a really good bender into the convoluted cause of uniting the Church with the Pub.
“Funny, funky, thousand-eyed and furious with hope...”
Joshua Cohen, best selling author of Book of Numbers
“Practical spirituality sometimes comes from the most unlikely of places and The Drunken Tourist is one of them.” Rev. Michael Lowell, m.s.u.
“The best black comedy self-help book you’re likely to find.”
Alexander Zaitchik, journalist and author of The Gilded Rage
“Reminiscent of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance...
where riotous times and blessed camaraderie set the stage for a self-reckoning of Dionysian proportions.” Amy Dalton, Current History Magazine
So really, what kind of book is this? In what genre does it fit?
Is it a budget travel guide? A spiritual pilgrimage? An exposé on mental health and recovery? A sex, drugs and rock & roll adventure story originally written in the Psych Ward of L.A. County Jail by an arguably diagnosed Bipolar Alcoholic? Yes.
