"A Quest Among the Bewildered" is Wulf Zendik's first full-length work, written at the artistic height of the Beat Generation. More than 40 years later, this tough, witty, semi-autobiographical take on the madness surging through the veins of modern day culture still hits home like a hammer blow—detailing one man's search for Love and integrity in a sea of lies, loneliness and deceit. Written in riveting free-form prose, this is Art on the edge, a live-wire ride into the psyche of a deeply human, deeply humane genius.

Wulf Zendik (1920-1999) was a primal, pragmatic visionary who refused to treat Art and Life as separate events. Throughout a lifetime that spanned the vast and sprawling twentieth century, from the age of the Model T to the age of artificial intelligence, Wulf brought his keen, heretical eye to the culture of his birth. With piercing insight and imagination, he revealed the root cause of a corrupt society, ultimately charting the way out of the mind-numbing mental prison that surrounds us all.
Wulf’s life and art were a process of mutual discovery, a masterful combination of aesthetics and integrity. With the aching beauty of "A Quest Among the Bewildered", he began a high-blown philosophic pursuit which continued on through the fire, fury and sensuality of "Blackhawk: The Last American Warrior" and the epic grandeur of "Zendik". Poet, novelist, musician, essayist, orator and inventor—Wulf Zendik’s tremendous legacy includes the open-ended concepts of Ecolibrium (ecological equilibrium) and Creavolution (creative evolution)—which together form the basis of a new way of living on Planet Earth. Zendik Farm, the cooperative artists’ culture which was Wulf’s home and creation, continues to thrive as the living embodiment of his benevolent ideals.Review:

"The book's strongest point may be its timeless sheen; its words seem Scotchgarded against theoretical dust." -- Hunter Pope, Mountain Xpress Magazine - Asheville, North Carolina
