Well Scotti thanks for bringing me back to the familiar after that unconventional little interlude in another world I'm not sure I can sufficiently capture this unusual read but here goesAn odd woman ghost supernatural being demented escapee from an insane asylum refugee from an animal pack who raised her from birth mysteriously appears from nowhere and begins attracting followersprotectorsobsessers like a string of planets trapped in her orbit Who is she What is she Where does she belong What should they do with herHer circling planets include Chin a Chinese man driven to find answers and a positive outcome without fully understanding why and BJ a cling 0n escapee from the mental asylum Sarah and Chin were fleeing Chin has brains and wisdom and can problem solve but because of the prejudices of the time must do so by feeding ideas through BJ's mouth his white companion in a wild west twisted version of Cyrano de Bergerac BJ on the other hand was a transplanted Sheldon Big Bang Theory on steroids I heard a story like this onceonly instead of a closet he lived in a tower and instead of toy horses he had books and lots and lots of wonderful toys and a magic rug and instead of having trouble walking he was completely lame and instead of being alone he had a godmother who loved him BJ who heard stories from blankets and was never sure if he was actually real or not was a hootAs this ragtag group of misfits ran into each other in a variety of ways the story touched on themes of mental illness prejudice race and gender relationships and different ness as it wove together humor history and adventure in a very uniue way What was this book I don't know for sure but this passage at the ending seemed to sum up our own individual takes on what we'd read and life in general A smart book disguised as a farce What we say occupies a very thin surface like the skin over a body of water Beneath this through the water itself is what we see sometimes clearly if the water is calm sometimes vaguely if the water is troubled and we imagine this vision to be the truth clear or vague But beneath this is yet another level This is the level of what is and this level has nothing to do with what we say or what we seePerhaps the reason BJ had to look for outward signs he existed
