Uli'uli Masina Black Moon: Where The Hell Is Pago Pago?
A raunchy sea story in which the hero, a medical doctor, cum solo sailor is holed up in Pago Pago aboard his ketch, CyberSpace, when he encounters a Samoan tristes tropiques, a face-off with "bush" doctors and pesky "spirits." A spirit, half crone, half sexy virgin spooks him. The possession takes him to a near death experience. He goes into the heart of darkness and learns that love and laughter prevail. Vivid characters reveal their wisdom in curious tribal incidents. As does Belle, the affectionate and enthusiastic spiritual seeking companion. She takes command and drives the story to a satisfying ending. It is an engrossing story of Anfechtungen, a fit of spiritual turmoil. Joanne Kyger, Bolinas poet, wrote this review. "I love the book. It has a succinct, easy line to read. The language is lively, active and your own eternal love for the pun. Which makes the 'Hero' a particular fellow. Most unique. Healing. Revealing. Shamanistic. I like the way you just jump into the story. And the happy ending, romantic. The characters are all very 'real.' As is Mariah and the very talented cat in a state of Samadhi. But Victor is the most original character I've met in a long time."
