A visionary story about letters never sent, life once flowing and now frozen, and the beauty of human connection.
Spanning Norway, Washington DC and Greece, This Is All He Asks of You is a visionary story about letters never sent, life once flowing and now frozen, swim-flying in golden light and the beauty of human connection. Above all, it is a story about how sad it would be if everything became like everything else.
A Note From the Publisher
Anne Egseth offers us an existential song from the heart of a 12-year-old girl who chooses to live by her own graces rather than subscribe to the limits of her family’s difficult circumstances. We are treated to living with Luna as she inhales the universe in her unique way of tasting the fullness of life through her never-ending curiosity. Estranged from her father, she is able to honor him daily to keep him in her life. Even her mother's health problems do not stop her from living fully with her innocent wisdom that matches many a sage. As a psychotherapist, I can see what an amazing lesson we are given in how we could all live if we, like this 12-year old, respected the universe to give us the strength to do what we are asked. Many thanks to Anne Egseth for taking us into Luna’s heart to live intimately with her as she persevered in all that was asked of her.
