The second of the four volumes of the Booker Series, Lost in Las Vegas continues the eponymous Booker Jones’s .

The second of the four volumes of the Booker Series, Lost in Las Vegas continues the eponymous Booker Jones’s saga of personal growth in consciousness from affluent Anglo (WASP) businessman with all the appropriate prejudices to a fully integrated human being with a much broader worldview. Although the stories are obviously imaginary, they evoke perennial truths and awaken an intuitive sense of the sublime. I am really surprised these works have not received greater popular acclaim.

LOST IN LAS VEGAS continues the story of NAKED INTO THE NIGHT. This is the second book in Monty Joynes’s series about Anglo (aka Booker Washington), a white man who has meandered his way into the spiritual center of a contracting Pueblo Indian community. After a profound, likely authentic, visionary kiva ritual, the Anglo’s adopted Pueblo tribe elders select him to rescue a young Indian man who is a prodigy of traditional dancing, and a potential successor to leadership, from the lifestyle of a performer in a Las Vegas resort hotel. I discovered LOST IN LAS VEGAS after stumbling across the initial work, NAKED INTO THE NIGHT, in my local college library.

I met Bob Friedman in 1962 at the first creative writing class ever offered at the University of Virginia. The small class was established by George Garrett, a significant novelist and poet, who became a mentor to Bob, me, and Henry Taylor, who later won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry. The three of us performed the role of publishers for an anthology of creative writing titled.

Oh, Rhiannon, she said sweetly, what an adorable gown. Then she turned to Casey. No surprises here, Madonna. But it’s Christmas not Halloween. Casey smirked with her head held high as she clumped down the stairs with Rhiannon trailing gracefully behind her. DJ frowned at Eliza, but continued to stand tall. Taylor had just given her a mini lecture about not slumping

The second of the four volumes of the Booker Series, Lost in Las Vegas continues the eponymous Booker Jones’s saga of personal growth in consciousness from affluent Anglo (WASP) businessman with all the appropriate prejudices to a fully integrated human being with a much broader worldview. This transformation is catalyzed by Booker’s immersion into the Native American traditions into which he is initiated by the few remaining practicing priests of a Pueblo tribe near Santa Fe in New Mexico. In this volume, Booker, now called Anglo, is trusted enough by the tribal elders to be tasked to go to Las Vegas to recover an endowed tribal dancer from his prodigal life as a Las Vegas showman and return him to his true destiny as a Pueblo leader. The dramatic description of the Vision Quest at the story’s climax is worth the whole price of admission.
Coupled with a believable story and mastery in telling it, Lost in Las Vegas is an excellent example of the now-resurgent Visionary Fiction genre as delivered by one of its early pioneers. And a very good read.

This is the second book in Monty Joynes' series about Anglo (aka Booker Washington), a white man who has meandered his way into the spiritual center of a contracting Pueblo Indian community.
I discovered LOST IN LAS VEGAS after stumbling across the initial work, NAKED INTO THE NIGHT, in my local college library. I was quite impressed, all the more so because I discovered half way through reading it that the author lived in my relatively obscure mountain town! I found him in the phone directory, gave him a call, and after a half-hour conversation, immediately went out and bought the other two books. I was not disappointed!
LOST IN LAS VEGAS takes Anglo, who has by now earned a place of controversial respect among elders of his adopted Pueblo tribe, on the onerous task of retrieving a lost young Indian leader who is squandering his special dancing talents in the irreverent casinos of Nevada's gambling capitol. With characteristic sangfroid and guileless generosity, Anglo eventually wins the trust of the cynical dancer and even the high class prostitutes who control him. Anglo assists Dancer on an extraordinary vision quest in the desert outside Las Vegas, which realigns the young man with his Native roots. While the outcome is predictable, the journey is uplifting and often spellbinding. This is my favorite of the three works published so far.
All the books in Monty Joynes' series belong in the category of what might be called spiritual or allegorical fiction. Although the stories are obviously imaginary, they evoke perennial truths and awaken an intuitive sense of the sublime. I am really surprised these works have not received greater popular acclaim. I found them much better written, more profound and believably realistic than such recent bestsellers as CELESTINE PROPHESY and CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD. Perhaps they'll be the sleepers of the year.
