James' Journey: From the Scottish Highlands Via New York and Texas to Mars and Beyond
James is down on his luck and he's only twenty-something. To set his life on a better course, he travels to Scotland where he was born and spent the first six years of his life. If he can find his roots, he reckons on making a new beginning. From the moment he encounters his cousin, whose existence is unknown to almost everyone, James realizes adventures beyond even his imagination. He travels back to the United States and on to outer space and the land of spirits. Along the way, strangers met apparently by chance metamorphose into teachers who initiate James into the worldy mysteries of sex, career, marriage, parenthood, and death of a loved one. James, who narrates this fictional autobiography, divulges intimate material. His subjective and personal account of his journey includes much psychological material, such as dreams, fantasy, poetry, and visions. This is a modern account of a young man's coming-of-age, told with the inside knowledge of a psychologist.
