Note from David Blane:
I, as the author of The Story of Michael, am more excited then ever to get ready for my book. It’s been a long time in the making and represents a lot more to me then most would expect.
The story itself is a fantasy, realistic, nostalgic, heroic, sad, and all around well told narrative. From beginning to end it’s going to take you on a ride that (1) you would not expect and (2) enjoy more than you think.
For me, David Blane, the book is a summation of creative story elements and ideas that I have strung together over several years. The inspiration, however critical it is to me, could not be based any one instance. It’s more likely that this story helps me search places in this narrative and real life that connect. Hopefully for you as well.
Why a book?
I don’t think there is an easy answer to that question. Right now, I’m not foolish enough to try anything bigger then what I have in this book now. Creatively, it gives me much more freedom and I can be as ‘out there’ as I want. How did we become afraid to dream dreams, or scared to explore your life without fear or worry?
