Description
After making an unexpected connection with God via his cell phone, one man embarks on an unlikely spiritual quest in this smart, savvy, rambunctious debut from Grammy Award-winning musician and New York Times bestselling author Rick Springfield.
Why are we here? What is love? Is there a loch ness monster? Does God send text messages?
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.
