I Don't Want To Be Famous

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Seven short stories that explore the essence of things. The landscapes and memories that inspire a 16th century Italian painter. What a scientist feels as he dissolves into nothing, lashed to a bonfire. How a mantra is born in a dark Tibetan temple. The relationship between a Literature professor and his flamboyant older brother, reduced to a postcard. Dreams and the meaning of dandelions to a six-year-old boy. Photos, words and the connections that bind us to our family, even across oceans. Why snow and love have the power to steal sound.

Each story creates a snapshot of the lives of seven people, from the Renaissance to the modern day. From a quiet mountain village in Japan to a quiet kitchen in the mountains of Italy to the quiet hopes of a young boy in suburban America. From the dark recesses of a Buddhist temple, rich with the smell of yak butter candles, to the bright flames of an execution and the view from the pyre.
