Somewhere in New Mexico, a middle-aged hermit who has rarely left the confines of his dusty library or moth-eaten pajamas, is about to embark upon a fantastic odyssey, exactly 400 years after the first edition of Cervantes’ Don Quixote.
In this colossal tragicomic epic of 625,000 words, Michael Charles Tobias (via his idealistic hero Murillo Marigold and Marigold’s terrestrial sidekick, Sannazaro) meditates on everything that matters: poetry, art, philosophy, alternative technologies, the ecological sciences, extinction, environmental ethics, human wrongs, animal rights, sustainable living, and utopia, past and future. And what style! Page upon page of inspired prose, evanescent poetics, incendiary ideals, polymathic puns and sobering truths, from a mind on fire that sees every moment and encounter as fodder for a grin, holy, and unique. The heart of the book is the author’s deeply personal and sublime vision: the sacredness of all living beings, the reverence for life, the passionate commitment to social and environmental change. This enormous, challenging beatific masterwork reminds us who we are and points the way to a “new nature”; to what the new world could one day be. The Adventures of Mr Marigold is a modern and perennial classic — entertaining beyond all description, nourishing, revolutionary, and profoundly wise. A Utopian Opera based upon the novel is in the works.
