Searching for the divine in the preposterous.
Torn value systems, consumerist pursuits, celebrity overload, chatter, the disproportion, aliens among strangers, strangers among strangers, and an astronaut named John K Mercury hurtling toward Mars in search of meaning. The aftermath of his story? How a book can impact the world.
What’s my book about? JOHN K.
This is my beat poem introducing a novel about seven strangers following in the wake of a self-proclaimed misanthrope on a mission to Mars. His thoughts are documented in a mysterious book discovered in a blown-out Cadillac in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. The book is entitled, JOHN K.
Listen up. Will you, too, become a disciple?
Mercury’s Wake is an extensive text which introduces John K and Seven Strangers.
Please be introduced to John K. Mercury –
