The Star at the End of the River

Meditations on a Homeward Journey

The Star at the End of the River proposes a new kind of spiritual journey—an ascent, not of a mountain, as in the traditional imagery, but of an inclined plane. Vincent invites his readers to become contemplatives of the ordinary and to discover the mystical power of such commonplace objects and occurrences as road signs, supermarket aisles, interior stairways, gooseflesh, and penmanship.
