Authored by Sandy Cohen
Travel along with Manny Markovitz and his guide, Abis -- part Native American, part madman -- as they take you on a wild, always funny, sometimes poignant journey from the wilds of Greece to the bogs and barrier islands of south Georgia, USA in search for Abis's boss, Willy Love. Enter with them into a world of imagination, wild adventure and absolute delight as Manny wakens back to life and love after a great personal tragedy. Perhaps you will, too. Critic Erwin Ford calls Revelations "a Candide for the 21st century."
PRAISE FOR SANDY COHEN AND REVELATIONS:
"I love it! And I'm jealous. . . you're quite a writer. Such pure, unadorned dialect; good strong story. Your characters live."
-- Janice Daugharty, author of Earl in the Yellow Shirt (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize)
"Moving . . . powerful. . . ."
-- Elizabeth S. Morgan
"A fine prose-poem."
-Wayne Brown, author of On the Coast (winner of the Commonwealth Prize)
