Shaman Express is a provocative and deeply humorous novel about the dangers of pursuing enlightenment. A depressed divorc e and a recovering addict are both at a crossroads in their lives. They barely know each other but decide to embark together on a journey with the intention of writing a book on experiential shamanism. But spiritual retreats and self-help books haven't prepared them for what lies ahead. Moving between pastoral Italy, the rugged steppes of Siberia, and the crowded streets of Thailand, the story alternates between ordinary reality and shamanic non-ordinary reality, the borders of which become blurred along the way. They may not find what they thought they sought, but they will be forever transformed.
