Product description

Review

"Walking Through Walls is a funny and poignant memoir about growing up in a family as strange and mysterious as the Bermuda Triangle -- Dad is a psychic healer with a day job interior decorating for dictators, the dead speak, and adolescence is an altered state of grace." -- Dirk Wittenborn, author of Pharmakon and Fierce People "A startling story, beautifully told. If you believe that science can explain everything, this book might change your mind. Walking Through Walls is a window into a fascinating world through the sensitive eyes of an observant son." -- Delia Ephron, author of Hanging Up "At long last, a subject worthy of a memoir. Philip Smith recounts the story of his father, a visionary, a psychic healer, and a saint, with matter-of-fact grace, without ever denying how difficult it was to be the child of a man with unlimited supernatural gifts. Lew Smith was a man we are unlikely to ever see the likes of again, one of the few fathers in literature whose death I mourned as if I'd known him. I wish I had known him; he was a miracle. Every page of Walking Through Walls reminded me of how vast the universe, and how meager the dreams of our philosophies." -- Haven Kimmel, author of Iodine and A Girl Named Zippy "Philip Smith's compellingly readable memoir of his father -- a psychic, exorcist, hands-on-healer, and...decorator! -- is as entertaining as it is bizarre, all the way to its unexpected and deeply moving conclusion." -- John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and The City of Falling Angels --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
