Product Details


“[A] modern-day allegory… with a keen intelligence and a surprisingly wry humor.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Novelist Susan Trott entertains and teaches in 34 delightful stories about a long, long line of people winding up a mountain to the home of the Holy Man. Throughout, Trott’s inventive mind and playful characterizations surprise us…” –San Francsico Chronicle

“Reminiscent of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales… The book cleverly encapsulates much of the human search for wisdom and happiness. In the brief time we spend with these characters, their tales become more familiar, and we recognize their questions, hardships, and needs as our own. The Holy Man dispenses a fresh brand of wisdom. With wit and modern insight, it compels readers to look inward, to turn to themselves, for enlightenment.” –Booklist

“Charming and quirky… [The Holy Man‘s] message shines…” –Publishers Weekly
