Review in Quadrant, XLIV, 2015

“In this thoroughly ‘of the moment’ book, Sherry Salman takes us on a journey starting on a train platform in Penn Station in Manhattan carried on the wings of her dream, to multifarious cultures, times, technologies and ideologies. She seeks to make a case that the “story before the story” lies in human imagination. If imagination¬†extends everywhere in all directions, where would we find a center?…She sees the approaching reckoning, the slouching monster headed toward its postmodern Bethlehem, as a confrontation with imagination itself rather than with the multitudinous posited parade if ideas, religious, cultural and political systems that History has presented through the Veil of Maya.”
