log for IndieReader

Robert Gerson’s Life: part-time is a moving work of visionary fiction, where a young creative woman helps her kindred spirit recover his damaged psyche and creativity. The writing is poetic and thought-provoking, inviting readers to examine their own creative path and purpose. The blending of prose, poetry, fantasy, and romance with realism is quite an effective way to tell this story.

booklife prize logoRobert Gerson employs elements of magical realism and mysticism to explore a man’s path back to creativity and purposeful living. The author provides an engaging blend of dreamlike prose with clear exposition and impactful dialogue.

This novel takes a unique approach to exploring ideas relating to life purpose, disillusionment, and the tensions between inner desires and practical needs. Readers will readily empathize with Nicholas Affini as he takes a metaphysical journey into his past and to his subconscious self. Additional characters effectively serve the fable-like aspects of the narrative.

Very Wonderful
This is a totally unique tale that defies categories.
Part romantic comedy, part spiritual wisdom, part sci-fi, part poetry, part travel and leisure. It’s sweet, charming, dramatic, multi-colored and adventurous. From the beginning, the novel feels like it’s telling a story of youthful love and personal growth. But be prepared for some metaphysical surprises that force us to examine our own lives and whether we are living our fullest, truest life. There are some very original concepts in this writing.
I have a strong feeling that parts of this book will stay with me for a long time.
— Rebecca Ortega-Guttman
