From August 18th through August 24th, get the first English edition of Alejandro Jodorowsky's "psychomagical" memoir Where the Bird Sings Best for just $6.99! This remarkable book has been compared to Marquéz’s One Hundred Years of Solitude in its imaginative scope and historical sweep. The story of the Jodorowskys’ emigration to Chile from the Ukraine, Where the Bird Sings Best explores family legends, the turmoil of history, Jewish philosophy, political violence, mysticism, passion, lust, loss, and the joyful absurdity of everyday life. A sui generis epic, Jodorowsky’s novel expands the classic immigration story to mythic proportions.
