Waiting for the Rapture: Scenes from a Magical Life

Front Cover
iUniverse, Apr 24, 2006 - Fiction - 152 pages
Even though author Ian Ransom's childhood environment tried to drain the life out of him, his Granny gave him an emancipating gift that helped him survive the chaos-laughter. Carrying on with the help of humor, he eventually found success by refusing to believe that the world is anything less than magical.

Escape awaits you in Waiting for the Rapture, a collection of Ransom's real-life witticisms. Ransom pulls no punches as he discusses childhood abuse, the Virgin Mary, rock star encounters, quirky soul mates, and madcap misadventures. His candid stories are a necessity for all who still believe that stubborn imagination-and magic-can make the difference between survival and destruction.

Internationally noted author of Mary and the Ossuary, Ransom delves deep into a masterpiece of vignettes that reveal heartbreak and the triumph of the human spirit through laughter.
