Sacred Fool, by Nathan Dean Talamantez

Sacred Fool is a genre-defying homage to one of the Surrealist Movement’s most undefinable artists: Alejandro Jodorowsky, “The Father of the Midnight Movie,”
and director of such cult classics as El Topo and The Holy Mountain.

This slender volume spans over ninety years of Jodorowsky’s psychological, spiritual, and artistic development through a series of episodic fantasy/adventure stories peppered with love letters from the author.

Nathan Dean Talamantez offers an encounter with the artist in which he promises “a view of yourself twisted through a prism by which I may show you something about yourself you’ve never seen before.” Whether you are a fan of Jodorowsky’s work, or in need of an epic escape, Talamantez’s creative wit and intimate relationship with Jodorowsky’s work make this short novel an irresistibly entertaining read.
