Offering a glimpse into the mind of an incurable poet with an indomitable spirit, “Resurrecting a Dead Letter” weaves elements of faith, science, and their conflicts, into a narrative where they become the indispensable tools in the will to live.

In his new novel “Resurrecting a Dead Letter: An Introspective Journey” (published by iUniverse), John Michaelmas examines the relevance of humanity’s deeply-rooted need to know that life is more than a series of moments in a story of personal reflection and self-discovery.

“Resurrecting a Dead Letter” is the narrative of 22-year-old college dropout, Vincent Martino, who works as a security guard in a parking garage. It is a job that gives him plenty of time to ponder about life, everything that goes with it, where he’s been, and where he’s going.

Martino traces his life from his birth in the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis, his stumble through middle school, his experiences growing up in his large family and his question if God exists and if life is worth living. He sees his life as a dead letter, one without purpose or direction. But following the advice of his brother Daniel, Martino resurrects himself and becomes a devoted teacher.

Offering a glimpse into the mind of an incurable poet with an indomitable spirit, “Resurrecting a Dead Letter” weaves elements of faith, science, and their conflicts, into a narrative where they become the indispensable tools in the will to live.
