Praise For Tula

This hero and his loved one, Tūla, not only live in that world, but personalize it, turning, through the human metaphor, into its direct children ... the entire book, all of the events, the hero's wanderings, separations, and short encounters with Tūla, is really only the boundless hunger of the soul, transformed by an agony of longing into things, birds, beasts, blossoms, and a vision of the loved one.
