Milwaukee, WI (Vocus) August 27, 2010
In author Charlie Quesada’s debut in publishing, he offers readers a compelling and provocative novel that will take them on a unique journey of self, life, and love. Blue Orexis is a tale of an obscure, unknown poet’s quasi-philosophical and spiritual quest for truth and love. It is a madcap chronicle that recounts the adventures of the poetic spirit.
This narrative spins an account that takes the reader through the labyrinth of Quentin Melquiades’s madness and loves. Like a deck of cards, life deals Melquiades different choices and chances. Melquiades finds himself in the arms of some of the most beautiful women that would rival the art of a Caravaggian esthete. Despite an uncertain future and promises, Melquiades’s life unfolds and leads to a peculiar journey that echoes the paradox of life and death.
Like the harbinger of a Faustian folly, striving to understand the mystery of life, the endlessness of being leads Melquiades to the conclusion that the purpose of it all—is love, itself.
Only a poet could bring to light the desire of the heart. And the words of Quentin Melquiades take up a life of their own. One may wonder if the hand of God left an indelible mark of goodness and perfection in the soul of the poet.
This book will be featured at the 2010 Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit in Chicago, IL on September 29-30, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
