These are the kinds of questions Horatio Cotton, aka Bobby, asks in "New York Times" bestseller Rick Springfield's debut novel, "Magnificent Vibration."
After stealing a mysterious self-help book called "Magnificent Vibration: Discover Your True Purpose" from a bookstore, Bobby calls the 1-800 number scrawled inside the front cover, only to discover that he has a direct line to God. This launches Bobby on an unlikely quest, serendipitously accompanied by a breathtakingly sexy and exceedingly sharp travel companion named Alice. Together the pair sets out to find some combination of spiritual and carnal salvation--and possibly save the planet.
By turns hilarious, poignant, over-the-top, and deeply meaningful, "Magnificent Vibration" is a highly original novel about the biggest questions one man--or mankind--has ever asked.
NPR's Rachel Martin talks to singer and actor Rick Springfield about his debut novel, Magnificent Vibration, a fantastical story about a man with a 1-800 number to God. More at NPR.org
