Note for Note Book 5 (Scatter) sees the river finally reach the ocean, roughly one thousand years after the events of Book 1 (Plough). It is the modern era in which people move at increasing speed and with increasing sophistication and increasing brutality, but essentially make the same choices as their ancestors did, although the context is absolutely different. There is a global transfer of goods, of culture and of those displaced and seeking refuge, the extent of which has never been seen before, but to a large extent people have forgotten their connections with what has gone before, and this ignorance is a sometimes fatal disconnection. The lives of a would-be patron of the arts and his partner connect with the lives of another couple, a painter and a dancer, in a harbour city where the mountain range also descends towards the ocean. These four people are further connected by the events that affect a homeless woman, a shoeshine man and a marginalised street artist. All of them are affected, knowingly or not, by the nature of events in the past, the influence of which changes the way each person’s present comes into being in a blend of imagination, fantasy and substance. One of them will float out to sea.

By Richard R. Roach, MD, FACP

Lisa Zuccerelli just wants to be normal. At the end of her senior year in high school, she has the distinction for the most detentions in the history of the school, thanks to an English teacher’s betrayal. Seemingly left with no other choice after a distressing graduation ceremony, she packs two weeks’ worth of rations, a canoe, and her broken heart and flees to the Canadian wilderness, where she hopes to piece her life back together and realize happiness.

 

After Lisa paddles her way to a campsite, she is forced to deal with the complex emotions associated with the stigma of a learning disability she can do nothing to change. But as Lisa is about to discover, nature has its own grim way of teaching lessons, and it is not long before she is rescued from the unforgiving wilderness by a kind family who helps her find her way back home. After facing several surprises, Lisa meets Heidi Barton, an Anishinaabe tutor who may just have the healing powers to help release the girl from her struggles—and find her true self.

 

Releasing Lisa shares the tale of a teenager’s emotional journey to overcome her learning disability and fears with help from the Canadian wilderness and an Anishinaabe friend.

Philip Francis Parkman, Democrat Congressman from the 14th District of New Jersey, fortified by his unexpected victory at the polls and motivated by high ideals and good intentions, embraces his perceived role as not only spokesman for his constituency, but also as caretaker of the Constitution of the United States. However, intervening reality soon crushes his idealism and vanquishes his hope he can make a difference.

Thus begins his slide on the “greasy griddle” as he calls it. He turns to alcohol to alleviate his disappointment. On his way down, forty-eight-year-old Parkman falls under the spell of a precocious teenage seductress—Catherine Taylor Quinter, the beautiful eighteen-year-old daughter of his political mentor. Parkman is, at the same time, falsely charged with campaign fraud and faces disgrace before the Ethics Committee. His long-suffering wife, Elaine, embarking on her own personal journey to secure her identity while professionally experiencing success, finds she must choose to save her own life or her husband’s.

Parkman’s slide lands him in a mental institution, called “the Facility” by the inmates, where he meets the enigmatic Winslow whose wisdom provides him with a new vision on life.

Three men—Seward Caprice, Joel Marlin, and Paul Drake—live their lives like so many others. There is nothing particularly spectacular about any of them. Each man loves, fears, and hates. Each man is haunted by the challenges that linger in his own mind, and each must find a way to maintain control. The difference lies only in how they choose to deal with this assigned task, this task of life. Often, Seward, Joel, and Paul dabble in self-destruction. They use self-abuse to keep their wild minds in check, and in this abuse, they find control—or do they? Soon appears a mysterious figure known only as “Salem.” Salem is an aristocratic madman who seems to have no background, no history. He just suddenly appears, and his dark mission for each man becomes clear. The three must now walk separate paths, all at the bidding of Salem. He exists as a stalking shadow that pushes each man toward an uncertain, and possibly disastrous, future. The dull lives of Seward, Joel, and Paul are now laced with uncertainty and deceit. Will these men find the way back to themselves or will the challenge of life be too much to bear?

After Hurricane Sandy destroys Seaside Heights’ Magic Pier, midlevel real estate lawyer Drake Garrison is compelled to return to his former place of employment to help rebuild it, just as his first child is about to be born. As the months go by, he struggles to balance the demands of two jobs, his home life and his friends’ bowling team, as the business leaders and politicians around him seek financial help from a Washington overrun with people who would rather let livelihoods be destroyed than allocate the funds to help them. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking the seconds to summer 2013, and the economic disaster that could follow the actual one if everyone doesn’t do their part. Magic Pier revisits characters first introduced in 2008’s My Evil Twin and I, only older, (somewhat) wiser and without all that evil-twin nonsense.
