‘Moving and absorbing’
‘An anthem of hope’
In her bestselling first novel, The Fifth Sacred Thing, Starhawk created an unforgettable character – Maya Greenwood, the 98-year old writer and rebel who in the 21st century leads a successful movement against a totalitarian regime. Now, in Walking to Mercury, Starhawk goes back in time to tell the remarkable story of Maya’s life – a story that spans the decades from the tumultuous sixties to the present New Age.
The story starts in 20th century California where Maya is making a pilgrimage to the monasteries of Nepal. Here she relives, in vivid flashbacks, her life from her late teens to her late thirties. Drawing on her own memories and the journals and letters of her lovers Rio and Johanna, Maya brilliantly recaptures the highs and lows of her time at Haright-Ashbury in 1967, the sex’n’drugs and anti-Vietnam protests of the early-Seventies, her ecstatic unions with soul-sister Johanna and wild, impulsive Rio, and her fractured relationships with her sister and mother.
Travelling through the landscape of memories is harder than Maya ever imagined – an intimate secret stands in her way, and she must face it before she can breathe life into her future. Walking to Mercury is a fascinating adventure about the inescapable forces that transcend all our lives and gives them meaning.
