About this title

Synopsis:

Magic Realism, Mystery, and Murder - An artist's fragile grasp on reality becomes more tenuous after he meets Albert Einstein on Arizona's high desert plateau. Maui artist Gilles Barker, his Hopi Indian cab driver and an illusory Albert Einstein are chased by a psychotic killer and his drug dealing boss across the deserts and bayous from Winslow Arizona to New Orleans's French Quarter in quest of lost love and a satchel's mysterious contents. Are Gilles's strange encounters and selective omniscience only in his imagination and dreams? Has he traveled through space and time? Gilles has grappled with these questions since two nights before his eighth Christmas, thirty years ago, when Ron from the planet Zargon first walked through his bedroom wall and told him of the true beginnings of life on earth - that fate is his only guide. Einstein's Road Trip is an off-beat literary fiction/urban fantasy among those on the finalists list for the Faulkner/Wisdom Creative Writing Competition. It is the second completed novel of a three book series.

About the Author:

I write offbeat fiction that some describe as magical realism. I paint pictures of people, purple trees and orange skies, and cupcakes the size of watermelons that are in private and public collections across the USA, Europe and Japan. I also own a little bar called Kahale Beach Club in Kihei on the southern coast of Maui where I can take refreshment and go watch the whales play. Drop by and say hello next time you're in town. Maui has been home since I came to Hawaii by chance in the summer of nineteen seventy eight. As an artist and writer, I can survive in one place about as well as any other, so why not wake up to a pleasant day? Occasionally my friends lounge in the shade of five palms that line the grassy knoll at the beach of Keawakapu - the Ha-waiian word for forbidden harbor according to my bartender, Kimo Kuaana. They sip mai-tais and gin as they prattle on about this and that. Sometimes I join them, of course, but you are more likely to find me in my studio readying paintings for show or writing whatever comes to mind. That’s the way I like it.
