AS THE BIRDS FLY – A novel by Bruce R. Hampson. Born into a family of Litvaks, Lithuanian Jews, Reginald Emanuel, a young boy of 12 years old, living in Canada, commences his quintessential quest through life looking for truth The doctors blamed dissociative fugue to explain his fantastical visits with his great grandfather who lived one hundred years before him, but Reginald knew it was time travel…and he has the proof. This is not just one more incredible story about an astonishing human being doing predictable things. it is a simple commonplace narrative, about a human becoming. Seeking happiness, love, money and success, and experiencing rejection, failure and let-downs, like we all do, along the way. Do we ever really discover who we are? Is our only obligation in life to discover our destiny? Is death to be feared more than living an inadequate life?
