Beyond the Cascade
"An absolutely brilliant book, full of insight, thoughtful, entertaining, and inspiring! "
In a compelling quest for a lost language, the brilliant, driven Suzannah Grant is thrust into adventures she had not counted on, and realities beyond her wildest imagining. The physical dangers of her trek into remote African mountains are surpassed only by the power of her discoveries about language, the human spirit, and the unbounded dimensions of her own nature.
This is a book I must read and re-read. It has kick-started my morbid creativity and has led to a breakthrough regarding the direction I want to go with my art.
I could hardly put the book down, I only did because I had to.
This is truly a book that everyone should read. I cannot recommend it enough.

Who will enjoy "Beyond the Cascade"? Anyone who likes a cracking good adventure tale, anyone who sees life as a spiritual journey, anyone who yearns to go beyond mere surface appearances and find a greater Truth...with a capital "T". This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. How do I sum it up? By saying: I wish I'd written it. -
The only way to make it through this fantastic journey is by re-reading and savoring passages to puzzle out the multilayered lexicon and mysterious parable. Highly recommend !
A.H. Jessup stands out, just as Kafka, Curzio Malaparte, André Baillon, Flaubert, Malcolm Lowry and other great writers stand out.
