Searching for Paradise and Other Stories


Searching for Paradise is a collection of humorous and provocative short stories that explore the need for satisfaction or completion often referred to as paradise. Some are about the search for immortality and the divine. Others are about the creation of art and the imitation of nature. Some are about the yearning of the human heart for love and understanding, while others deal with what happens when we experience the opposite. A museum guard helps capture a thief even as he dreams of stealing a famous painting. An anthropologist seeks to unravel the mystery of an ancient fertility figure while coping with his own flagging libido. A zealous young man tries to convert a gay couple just before the Apocalypse. Andy Warhol recalls his childhood but forgets to wear his silver wig on his last trip to the hospital. Another famous artist tries to see beneath the surface of things and depict a deeper meaning with the shapes and colors on his canvas. And Samuel Beckett finds himself in hell despite his disbelief in the afterlife. These and other stories in this collection will entertain and enlighten the curious reader.
