NEW YORK (PRWEB) December 11, 2014
Author J.J. Stone’s “Bungee Love” (published by Trafford Publishing) is a poignant memoir of a man who struggled through divorce, fought through a maelstrom of sexual adventures and unexpectedly discovered love again after a life-changing move to Asia.
This year, in addition to receiving a positive evaluation from the U.S. Review of Books, “Bungee Love” has been selected for inclusion in the Trafford Gold Seal program, which recognizes excellence in writing and overall potential.
Stone’s autobiographical narrative centers on his rediscovery of himself after going through a painful divorce and moving to Asia to start a new life. What he found in Asia was not only a new life, but also a new perspective on culture, history, religion and, ultimately, love. He writes vividly about ancient temples in Indonesia and Cambodia and cultural revelations in Thailand and Singapore, but the unique signature of his book is his conflicted, candid and compassionate perspective on the women he meets during his travels. Although he was drawn to the tawdry and dangerous life of bargirls, he was rescued by the love and goodness of a young Buddhist woman.
Praise for “Bungee Love”:
“While the quest to find oneself in strange surroundings may seem like typical fare for a contemporary novel about the emotional development of men, the frank honesty and no-holds-barred look at life in Southern Asia as a foreigner is powerful. (…) This is ultimately a solid piece of fiction that encourages the reader to imagine the world beyond their city or country, while at the same time turns their gaze inward.”
