Zany! A Father-Son Odyssey
Wildly off-beat, whimsical, humorous, and philosophical, here is an adventure story to engross the mind, warm the heart, and quicken the imagination.
World-renowned concert violinist Zoltan Zany has been sitting in his living room armchair for an entire year, contemplating-with the help of his unconventional friends and Austrian housekeeper-the future direction of his life.
Meanwhile, his etymologist son, Attila along with an Israeli linguist and archaeologist named Isaac Mashugi, is traveling-in search of the first Word uttered by Man-to Eastern Turkey’s Mt. Ararat, where they believe this original Ur-word can be found by discovering Noah’s ark. They are joined there by the elder Zany.
They discover the Word and, on a quest for further adventure, return to America to launch a new kind of travel business-Posthumous Tours, specializing in dead customers and raising funds by selling reincarnation insurance.
