The Metaphor Maker

AN INTRIGUING ADVENTURE OF THE SPIRIT . . . 

–Dr. Bruce Epperly, author of Process Theology: A Guide for the Perplexed

Metaphor Maker 1THE FIRST IN THE FAT SOUL PHILOSOPHY SERIES

The Metaphor Maker (set in 1968) is the first novel in the Fat Soul Philosophy Series.  Madeline Prescott, grieved by the loss of her brother in Vietnam, embarks on a quest for “a metaphor to live by.”  Under the wing of Eve van Gelder, proprietor of Van Gelder’s Tea and Books, she finds herself in a world of tea-drinking thinkers, poets, and quirky counter-cultural characters.  Unnerved by the possibility that her brother’s death was not as it was officially recorded, she faces a stone wall of silence that mirrors her writing block as a poet.  Just as she begins to discover metaphors of healing, she is hit by another shocking loss, one which threatens all hope in the world.  Against the backdrop of the cultural upheavals of 1968, Madeline falls in love, not only with her future husband, but also with a radically fresh way of re-imagining God in a world of war and suffering.  In this novel, Madeline’s Fat Soul Philosophy is born.
