Description

***Please note this is an ARC and may contain typos or errors that will be corrected in the final, published edition of the book***

The best literary fiction stimulates the intellect, stirs the spirit, and (at its best) offers unforgettable insight into the deep, universal truths of the human experience. Critically acclaimed author Robert Steven Goldstein proves to be exactly this type of luminary in American fiction with his newest novel examining the inseparable bond between science and spirituality, Cat’s Whisker (Koehler Books, September 27, 2021). 


Cat’s Whisker chronicles the life of Samuel Baron, an engineer, inventor, and successful entrepreneur. Trained as a scientist, Baron nonetheless nurtures a lifelong fascination with mysticism and spirituality. His life is a search—ultimately a successful one—for a view of the cosmos where science and spirituality don’t just peacefully coexist—but where the two are intimately bound up as co-equal aspects of an integrated and inspiring reality.

Cat’s Whisker features themes as varied and interesting as meditation, Jiu Jitsu, biology, anthropology, Tai Chi, BDSM—and the search for the perfect cocktail.

Those who take on Cat’s Whisker will find it evocative, emotionally moving, intellectually stimulating—and perhaps most importantly—they will find that it probes human spirituality in a manner that is revelatory and uplifting.

A Note From the Publisher

ROBERT STEVEN GOLDSTEIN retired from his job as a healthcare information executive at age fifty-six and has been writing novels ever since. His first novel, The Swami Deheftner, about problems that ensue when ancient magic and mysticism manifest in the twenty-first century, has developed a small cult following in India. His second novel, Enemy Queen, a sexual comedy of manners set in a North Carolina college town, was a finalist in the category of cross genre fiction for the International Book Awards. His most recent novel is Cat’s Whisker, about the perceived rift between science and spirituality—an excerpt from Cat’s Whisker, entitled “An Old Dog,” was featured in the fall 2018 edition of Leaping Clear, a literary journal. Robert lives in San Francisco with Sandy, his wife of thirty-three years, and Cali, a fearless, lovable Akita/Cattle-Dog. Robert has practiced yoga, meditation, and vegetarianism for over fifty years.
