The magnum opus from Alejandro Jodorowsky‚Ä∞√õ√ìdirector of The Holy Mountain, star ofJodorowsky‚Ä∞_s Dune, spiritual guru behind Psychomagic and The Way of Tarot, innovator behind classic comicsThe Incal and Metabarons, and legend of Latin American literature.
There has never been an artist like the polymathic Chilean director, author, and mystic Alejandro Jodorowsky. For eight decades, he has blazed new trails across a dazzling variety of creative fields. While his psychedelic, visionary films have been celebrated by the likes of John Lennon, Marina Abramovic, and Kanye West, his novels‚Ä∞√õ√ìpraised throughout Latin America in the same breath as those of Gabriel Garc√å_a M√å√Årquez‚Ä∞√õ√ìhave remained largely unknown in the English-speaking world. Until now.
Where the Bird Sings Best tells the fantastic story of the Jodorowskys‚Ä∞_ emigration from Ukraine to Chile amidst the political and cultural upheavals of the 19th and 20th centuries. LikeOne Hundred Years of Solitude, Jodorowsky‚Ä∞_s book transforms family history into heroic legend: incestuous beekeepers hide their crime with a living cloak of bees, a czar fakes his own death to live as a hermit amongst the animals, a devout grandfather confides only in the ghost of a wise rabbi, a transgender ballerina with a voracious sexual appetite holds a would-be saint in thrall. Kaleidoscopic, exhilarating, and erotic,Where the Bird Sings Best expands the classic immigration story to mythic proportions.
