Trinity remains ignorant of her creative potential as an artist. Her son Zeus loses himself in the attainment of corporate wealth and power. Feeling alone and confused, her grandson Enoch wanders displaced thirty years after the turn of this century, and only Trinity's secret wisdom can uncover Enoch's path towards enlightenment and subsequently restore a family torn apart by violence and fear. The Sea of Milk is a novel about a woman's fateful fall and her fulfilling rise. This is a story about the woman's son who attempts to conquer and control his environment in order to rid personal shame and suffering. This is a story about the woman's grandson who redeems his father and thus glorifies her. It is, most of all, a myth about living and dying and returning home.
The jungle and the war follow the same rule: A bitter fate devours the family and the whole world of a little boy. Arun is only a slave, a talking tool of the Khmer, and in a lost country nobody cares about his suffering. Despair turns into anger and from anger the thirst for revenge arises. And when Arun rises up, the story of the largest and most beautiful religious monument on the earth begins. The first historical adventure novel about the legendary miracle and the beginning of an immortal story.
The radiant essence of the Unknowable Deity curdles and spreads throughout the depths of the Great Breath (Space in Pralaya), the Eternal Parent, breathing out Chaos-Theos-Kosmos, an all-in-all Triple Deity. The Apsarases differ from the Gandharva Devas: the former are mere qualities and quantities. The latter, celestial singers, musicians, and instructors of mankind in the Secret Science. They are the Asuras or Daimons of the allegory. At the churning of the Ocean of Amrita, the Water of Immortality, the Suras and the Asuras twisted Shesha, the Great Serpent, rope-like round Mt. Mandara causing it to revolve. The Gods were at the one end of the serpent, the Daimons at the other.
In the two years after the 1939 publication of Steinbeck’s masterful The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck and his novel increasingly became the center of intense controversy and censorship. In search of a respite from the national stage, Steinbeck and his close friend, biologist Ed Ricketts, embarked on a month long marine specimen-collecting expedition in the Gulf of California, which resulted in their collaboration on the Sea of Cortez. In 1951, after Ricketts’ death, Steinbeck reissued his narrative portion of the work in memory of his friend and the inspiration for Cannery Row’s “Doc”. This exciting day-by-day account of their journey together is a rare blend of science, philosophy, and high-spirited adventure. This edition features an introduction by Richard Astro.
