During nightly prayer a monk falls into a deep and unexpected meditative trance that takes him back and forth in time, forcing him to revisit life, reluctant intentions, and sublimated lusts
The night serves as both personal abyss and universal refuge to longstanding doubts, suppressed anger, and reluctant self-discovery. He is compelled and repelled by a most primal mystery and a most final revelation. Vasile Munteanu was born in Romania and moved to the United States as a teenager. He holds advanced degrees in both Literature and Philosophy from Oakland University in Michigan and State University of New York at Binghamton respectively. He teaches Philosophy and Literature at the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas. Godmaker is his first novel.
