"These are some of the questions posed in FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH, my first novel. The book has two concurrent story lines: The first is set in a small town in New York State (suspiciously similar to my childhood town of Penn Yan, NY, it has been pointed out), where Ray Jensen appears to have stumbled upon an elixir made from homemade wine that might keep you alive forever. The second is the narration of an enormously fat man who has locked himself away on a cruise ship and has delusions of being a kind of God while he comes to grips with the premature loss of his beloved father.
It all kind of makes sense in the end.
It's very much about my life and the early loss of my dad." -- Jim Gullo
"The words that jump to mind to describe this book - clever, witty, imaginative, poignant - are all so clichéd that they end up feeling misleading to use relative to The Fountain of Youth. This is one audacious, unusual book. So let me say this: Fountain is a tender seduction, easing the reader into a willingness to ponder existential questions without the usual side effects of nausea and despair. Written in a style reminiscent of Glen David Gold, it intersperses belly laughs with gentle reminders that we are all a little better off if we ruminate a bit on how we are proceeding with our lives. You'll be a better version of yourself having read this book." -- Janet Noble Iversen, psychologist and author
