Set in the midst of the outlandish war-ravaged kingdoms of Nepal and Tibet, this heart-wrenching journey of discovery delivers breathtaking Action & Adventure in a powerful and unforgettable saga of human aspiration, international intrigue, high-altitude drama, and special operations missions. At once exotic, romantic, captivating, and thrilling in its world-shattering dimensions, Questing for Überjoy is a personal treasure, a dazzling jewel of a novel, and a luminous triumph of contemporary fiction. Logline: When a naïve young American man discovers his fiancé has been abducted by Maoist rebels while on a Peace Corps teaching assignment in Nepal, he must overcome daunting political obstacles, seeking help from hard core special operations mercenaries and unconventional mountaineering guides, a he crosses the "rooftop of the world," the majestic Himalayas, in a postmodern spiritual and physical quest to try and find her.

This astounding series of ultra-contemporary novels is positively Post-Lux (after the light) — post-enlightenment, postmodern, post-perspicuous gems of literary fiction from a bold and luminous visitant. Blazing with non-stop eye-opening drama, keen psychological insights, and layers upon layers of linguistic pyrotechnics, the reader is at once awed, and entertained, and perhaps even cultivated by reading, indeed by experiencing these vivid theatrical renditions. Each book stands alone as a work of art, yet together they form a transformative ensemble.
