Flight Into Egypt
A Novel
Julian Stamper

ISBN 1-56474-456-6
128 pages, paperback, $12.00
Bolinas is a quirky, hard-to-reach haven for writers. Over the years it has been home to Richard Brautigan, Tom McGuane, Anne Lamott—and Julian Stamper, who perhaps gives us the clearest view of what Bolinas stands for. His world is populated by scruffy philosophers, bemused musicians, beautiful naked women, shrieking happy children, folks of the sand. The ocean is never more than a few feet from the page. Stamper's fiction, and especially this new novel, is full of weather and laughter, a celebration of the wild spirit of Northern California bohemians. Bolinas is a place where anything can happen and almost nothing does.
