Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983214808, Paperback)A BOLD LOOK AT LIFE A GLIMPSE INTO DEATH
In her fast-paced, debut novel, ONCE BENEATH THE STARS, R. S. Lentin captures readers and brings them into the mind of a man dying to get out of his skin. Etched on the pages is the raw exposition of the resilience and courage of star quarterback Mike Murphy, whose body dies on a football field--but his dreams do not. With brothers as arms and legs, Mike's powerful journey is both mournful and uplifting. Set in the 70s and 80s, lyrics from revolutionary music of a generation that changed the world--including Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Led Zeppelin and Van Morrison--are the Greek chorus expressing emotions the characters and scenes portray. This tender, heartrending novel casts a compassionate eye on the true meaning of life, love, and death.
"Lentin provides an honest and often humorous account of daily challenges and triumphs." Kirkus
