Addled: Adventures of a Reluctant Mystic is a novel about spiritual awakening in a crazy world, and how the crisis of spiritual emergency can become an awakening.
The story follows reluctant mystic Zoe Popper on her quest for inner peace and self-knowledge. Addled explores the line between mysticism and madness using the philosophy of Zen Buddhism, and offers an alternative perspective on mental illness.
Sometimes you think you’re going crazy, but really you’re going sane.
Here’s the blurb:
Zoe Popper has visions at the most inconvenient moments, like when trying to meet guys in a bar. She thinks she’s going crazy. Her dad was the same, and it killed him. But when she meets a mysterious gentleman who offers to become her teacher, it forces her to confront her darkest fears.
As she fights to hold her family together, Zoe realises she must risk her sanity for a glimpse of the truth. But will the prize be worth it? After all, what use is enlightenment if you can’t hold on to the people you love?
