9781478263609: Mohr Nevermore

From the pulls of romantic love to the perplexities of religious beliefs, how does one man make sense of his life's trajectory? Such is the mandate for Owen Mohr, a college professor whose troubled psyche is finally winning out. And he soon discovers that the only way to reclaim it is to revisit his own life story, one chapter at a time. MOHR NEVERMORE, the debut work of literary fiction in a series by Merv Daub, is a fascinating, reflective foray into the circumstances that make a man, casting a thought-provoking new light on the role of the hero in modern man. A more philosophical Harry Angstrom in John Updike's RABBIT series, Owen Mohr has crafted an existence that should suit him fine. An accomplished university lecturer with perfect companion in a French girlfriend he calls the Muff, the good professor should be more than content. However, his increasingly acute panic attacks render this all but impossible. Reluctantly driven to banish them, Mohr surreptitiously arranges to meet a psychologist colleague named Luther under the guise of academic discourse. Soon their conversations over tea raise questions and reveal truths about his world, his life and the very meaning of it all. From childhood events like the death of Mohr's grandfather, to his college epiphanies with kindred spirits, MOHR NEVERMORE reveals the psychological, emotional and philosophical aspects that come together in the life of the mind. Warmth, ironic humour, and existential overtones imbue this deeply personal and yet universal story. Through the joys, the sorrows, and the special solace of his talks with a new and cherished firend, Owen Mohr slowly unpeels the layers of his own existence, engaging the ccontemplative reader in his singular road to self-knowledge. It's a must read for anyone who relishes a richly complex stroy, and the revelations that can come from meaningful discourse.
