About this title


Joe Sugayan--a sculptor and drummer meets Lynn Danielle—a dancer, a poet, an artist, a lifelong student of existentialism, a single mother grieving for displaced sons, at a time in her life when she is attempting to revive her whimsically invented heroine, Pollyanna Pangloss, (think optimisn on steroids) by dancing on Bokonon’s highway of “Peculiar travel suggestions.” In reality Lynn takes up the time-honored tradition of renewing her virginity in the sea, a nearly forgotten ritual established by Aphrodite. When she meets the drummer his beats take possession of her feet and her heart; he is an artist who sculpts life as well as wood. Joe is real, the quintessential Ares, a disciple of experience. Lynn is real. Her daughter Marika is more capricious than Puck. The poets are real. For their own amusement the classic cast of the Pantheon have, unbeknownst to anyone, possessed a group of San Francisco Bay Area poets and their interventions further the plot. Lynn’s world turns upside down. What kind of feet does she land on? Are they His or are they Hers? This book is a fictitiously honest exploration of real life magic and a totally honest journal of Victorian home restoration. Existentialism? Garden-variety madness? Who is in control?

About the Author:

Born in Berkley as Lynn Danielle Clover just before the Atomic Bomb exploded the old reality, the author grew up surrounded by every manifestation of art, literature, and ideas. She studied ballet from the age of four and classical piano from the age of eight; she excelled at neither but embellished, in her own distinct style, a lifelong passion for dance, music, and an ancestrally inherited spirit of liberty. She maintained these pursuits throughout a series of early marriages, five pregnancies, and a nonstop one-class-at-a-time approach to education all the while reading her poetry in Berkeley, Oakland, and North Beach coffee houses. After she married the musician and sculptor Joe Sugayan she finished her studies at U.C. Berkeley, receiving a MA, and began teaching. Together Lynn and Joe built a log home in the vast open ranchland over the hill from Berkeley and celebrated annually the Winter Solstice in their barn/studio to commemorate the moment their lives fused. Following Joe’s death in 1999 she married folksinger and political agitator Eliot Kenin. The Winter Solstice tradition continues. Upon retirement the author returned to writing. Currently Lynn pursues her love of solitude, gardening, grandchildren, mountains, and her horse Valentine.
