Description

X Out of Wonderland is a wild odyssey through the Global Free Market that provides a poignantly human satire of contemporary life.X, the novel's decent and brave protagonist, maintains his optimist pursuit of love and The Good Life even as a series of catastrophes cast him out of his native Wonderland to bounce him around the world and back again. His heroic journey takes him through prison, sweatshops, war, and an incessant search for employment amid nonstop economic upheaval and natural disaster. But while pointing out the absurdities of our times, X's story also shows clearly the universal predicament of all humans in all cultures in all times: the need to find meaning and dignity in our lives despite the certainty of death and suffering. This modern saga makes clear that despite our folly, we've got a few things going for us: faith, hope, love, and the capacity to laugh at ourselves.show more
