Twisted Fables for Twisted Minds Reviews


"Twisted Fables is a thought provoking, inspiring mixture of tales so gratuitously weird that I couldn't have made them up myself. Instead of imparting some trite platitude, each tale tends to include an improbably named character facing some life changing situation involving drugs, sex, incredible coincidences or a debauched hodge-podge of all three. The character is visited by an angel (barefoot doctor), who dispenses sound spiritual advice, preaches acceptance and tolerance, reaffirms the temporary nature of existence and the wholly oneness of the Tao, and imparts instructions in motivational technique or Taoist exercise, which seem to genuinely work. A self help, guaranteed to crash course for the chemical generation." Howard Marx (Mr Nice) "Sometimes we are unable to navigate a clear direction on the path to life. This collection of fables can help direct you towards the path of inner peace, positivity and contentment. An excellent spiritual guide." Danny Rampling, DJ/Producer 'An imaginative little book that doesn't take life -- or itself -- too seriously!' Highland News "Barefoot Doctor is the modern day equivalent of a nomadic healer (but he's also got) enough charm and humour to make palatable at least some of the pseudospiritual psychobabble his vocation involves" DAILY TELEGRAPH "A charismatic figure with a calming way (of helping his charges) ! one to catch." TIME OUT "(After one hour of healing), the sense of lifted spirits and serenity is overwhelming" VOGUe
