The Holy Grail? No.
Aliens? No, again.
True love? If you got it, hold on to it. If not, good luck in the best possible way.
I’m currently reading the book Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. The protagonist states in the beginning, “It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and fate and the choices we make…”
And the choices in his search that he makes are unforgettable. Just as are the choices we make. It’s a search that, in one form or another, takes a lifetime. In Jacob Will, 11.0: A Coward’s Guide to Living, this protagonist learns that in a hard, funny, and hopefully poignant way with lasting effects.
What are the choices you’ve made in your search? Are you happy with them?

Writer, author and photographer Bruce Meisterman is known for his non-fiction documentary book Arn? Narn. He has since turned to writing fiction. He has now written his second book of fiction The Light Inerrant.
All light, the sun, stars, electrical, and reflections, disappear only to return momentarily, again and again. Not surprisingly, fear spreads across the globe. It will take a dedicated group of scientists to discover light has become sentient. And that's not even the biggest surprise they'll encounter.
His first book of fiction A Coward's Guide to Living could best be described as Homer's Odyssey meets Thelma and Louise, minus Louise.
Most people start their mornings with a cup of coffee. Jacob Will's started with attending the funeral of his best friend. And in a letter left for him by the deceased, he was charged with getting his act together - big time. It would take him across the country into places he never thought of visiting, interacting with people for the first time in a genuine way, and finding and then losing love.
