Item description for Cosmic Cow (Green Integer) by Sam Eisenstein...
Cosmic Cow is, on the surface, the story of Sam and his journey taken -under the directions of his then 15-year-old wife, Judy. His journey to Tierra del Fuego and New York ends, ultimately, in San Francisco, where Judy is committed to a mental institution.
Superficially, Sam's journey is a standard quest, thwarted by his lover's madness. But his "real" journey-a maze of internal perceptions with surrogates of himself and Judy at every turn-is an exploration of how we are sometimes animated by the identities of others. In this work, Eisenstein struggles with a concept of "twins" or "duplicates" on a metaphysical and epistemological level.
Author of The Inner Garden, Price of Admission and Rectification of Eros, Sam Eisenstein lives and teaches in Pasadena, California.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cosmic Cow (Green Integer)?
An Astonishment Dec 19, 2003
I've never encountered an imagination like Eisenstein's. Where does he come from? Some interstellar place? His characters are like none other I have met before. I wanted this very long book to go on even longer. I will certainly acquire his other novels. I understand there are four of them in addition to this one. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who wants to exercise a few more neurons than usual.
