On STALKING ELIJAH
I received the following note from an early reader: "I am a bookseller and I just finished reading an uncorrected proof of Stalking Elijah. I certainly hope it is not one of the 100 forthcoming titles recently dropped by Harper Collins because I thought it was wonderful. My wife said, "Every time I look at you you are reading that book again."... "I've recommended Jew in the Lotus to many people as a good introduction to both Judaism and Buddhism. Stalking Elijah is an equally compelling as a narrative of your Jewish renewal. Sort of a cross between Carlos Casteneda's Teachings of Don Juan and Weiner's 9 1/2 Mystics for the nineties. I appreciated your critical while supportive presentation. My copy is full of underlinings and marginal notes."
