Originally published in 1997, this is the metaphysical memoir by the legendary writer of Superman and Batman. He spent seventeen years writing these characters during the 1940s and 1950s.
Alvin Schwartz was contacted by a seven-foot Buddhist monk named Thongden who puts the author on the Path without Form. This journey takes Schwartz on a personal journey through a world of the unusual to learn spiritual and metaphysical insights.
An interesting book, it is one that will intrigue the reader from beginning to end. A prolific author, Schwartz continues to write about what he has experienced, and knows first-hand. A screenwriter, he has written over thirty docudramas for the National Film Board of Canada. He currently lives in Canada.
The twenty-two chapters in An Unlikely Prophet will intrigue readers with their richness of detail and insights. An unusual book, one that both imaginative and colorful.
