The story of a young boy and his quest to be a doctor. It’s a work of great imagination as Audrey uses his mind to escape from the conditions of life. His umbrella can take him places he sees in dreams. It’s ultimately a story of man vs self as he tries to understand himself and ﬁnd the answers to life. What’s the point of all this? He sets oﬀ on a quest for a rainbow named Arco that’s said to lead to nirvana also known as everlasting happiness.
The novel tackles issues like ﬁnancial hardship, love, health, growing up, sexuality, and the nature of religion. Life itself.
It’s one of the most unconventional stories you’ll read using poetry and ﬁction, fantasy and reality, dreaming and waking. What if David Copperﬁeld woke up in Wonderland? Too easy a description…..
What does it take to be a doctor? What sacrifice?
