Riassunto: A Post-Modern Satiric Romp Across the Globe Fueled by Tantra, LSD and American Longing
With a pulsing wit Shyam Dodge takes us on a savagely satiric tour through the dope decade of the sixties, the spiritual commune of the seventies, Hollywood celebrity, and the new American yoga craze. Wet Hot and Wild American Yogi is a meta-narrative spun at high velocity, fueled by honest rage, grief, and an intense philosophical yearning. It is simultaneously a chronicle and critique of the baby-boom legacy told by one of our most original and iconoclastic storytellers. Shyam Dodge is a cock-sure twenty-seven year old who tackles his subject with a bold, virile, sexually charged prose, and reckless humanity reminiscent of Dr. Thompson, young Kerouac, and Voltaire.
He will make you cry, he will make you laugh, he will reaffirm your faith in the capacity of the human heart to heal. It is ultimately a story of family, loss, and transformation across generations and continents.
STARRING: Shyam Dodge, incarnation of a Hindu god * California Guru * former lifelong monk * and now failed divinity
FEATURING: Patrick Bishop, Japanese American orphan * nineteen sixties psychedelic adventurer * traveling homeless monk-spiritual teacher * '80s Soap Opera Star of General Hospital fame * beloved father and husband, R.I.P.

And many more strange and fabulous characters in this shocking true story of an artistic counter-cultural family, beginning in Nazi Germany, WWII era Japan, the summer of love and ending in Northern India and a small backyard strung with Christmas lights in Hawaii USA

?Wet Hot and Wild (a deliberately silly title for a serious little book) recounts an authentic spiritual journey. It flows like a stream of consciousness from an unusually conscious person.?
