There is a moment when everything stops. 

There is a moment when the clock does not tick. Understanding and feeling unite. For Vishesh Darshane, it happened when he was only ten. 

On a beach,  from a distance, he sees a woman. She seems to command the elements. There is beauty and there is perfection. Vishesh can feel it.

“If you have this feeling,” he tells us, “you might also never forget. You might want to run and tell the world. But after the running, the words fail. But my awareness did not fail. 

“My awareness, my attitude and understanding did not change. They opened. Like a door. Like a curtain. Like a current of electricity that reaches a bulb. The filament glows in the glassed vacuum. It glows bright. And then, all at once, it fills the darkened room with light, a rich and bathing luminance.”

Like a river seeking the ocean, Vishesh’s life flows from that single moment.

“I am holding only a thread,” he says. 

“I do not want to let go.

“Be still. Remember my name. It is the label that is attached to me. It is the one thread that is sewn through this entire story. Your story or my story – it is only the stitching that changes. The want is the thing that drives us.

“Trust me: I have a story to tell.”

“In Rabindranath Tagore’s footsteps, Richard Payment writes beautifully, and generates a moving evanescence, working, as he does, in the age-old but always compelling area between writing and dreaming. This is as much a prose poem as it is a novel, the kind of book and writer we must not lose in the new unsatisfying welter that corporate book publishing has become.” Frank Delaney, author, journalist and broadcaster

“A fresh voice, one that follows its own promptings and isn’t going to be marshalled by what other people might want. It’s about discovery, very much in tune with the zeitgeist.” Elizabeth Buchan, author of Light of the Moon, I Can’t Begin to Tell You, Revenge of the Middle Aged Woman and other novels

“The book is a true gift and guide to better understand the quest for and sources of euphoria and completeness.” Amy Barone, poet, author of Kamikaze Dance

“I adore the sparse style and the easy melody of the prose. A natural writer, this fellow. The narrator, Vishesh Darshane, is endearing and I would follow him to the ends of the Earth.” Sonja Yoerg, author of House Broken, Middle of Somewhere and Clever as a Fox
