Adam Baker, an eco-farming consultant, is divorced, estranged from his family... totally miserable. Walking on a deserted beach, he meets "Selph, " a precocius, overweight, wisecracking, sloppily-dressed teenager who appears out of nowhere and claims to be his long-sought spiritual teacher. Wanting to get Adam's attention, Selph brings a long-dead seabird back to life. Thus begins this funny, insightful, dramatic, and fast-paced adventure about the meaning of life. With Selph's wit, antics, and not-so-gentle guidance, Adam evolves from embittered selfishness to understanding life, death, and the spiritual basis of the universe. Against a background of passionate romance, injury, pain, and the harsh beauty of Australia, this magical story will enlighten and entertain and inspire you to appreciate and celebrate life, no matter what the circumstances of "fate" may bring your way.
