Development Pitch

In 1969, Tree Man, a draft-dodging, guitar-playing, tree-chopping, rebel fringe-monkey dreams of rock n roll glory and marital bliss with his high-school sweetheart, but a letter from the draft board puts his dreams on hold. To serve his conscience, he must flee the country to avoid serving in a war he opposes or serving time in prison. On his way to Canada via Woodstock, Tree Man runs into Crazy Chick, a precocious, teenage genius. Together they are conscripted by fate to serve as ambassadors of peace, launched unwittingly on a mission to save humanity from itself and its endless wars...a cosmic plan orchestrated by the timeless Pythia perched on her tripod around 411 B.C.E. breathing pneuma fumes, conjuring prophecies in the Temple of Apollo in Delphi...a plan to dismantle the top-heavy patriarchal paradigm threatening the species with extinction, by restoring the balance of masculine and feminine principles and ensuring our future with the insertion of the Venus and the Penis, the missing pieces, into the Earth Puzzle, flying through wormholes to their past and future lives: the birthplace of democracy and a utopian colony on the moon.

About The Author

Stephen James Vitelli. In his youth, the author had the good fortune to travel and live around the world with his family. When he was 11 years old, attending Bombay International School in 1965, he wrote and performed a short play about a professor who built a time machine and took his students back in time to ancient Greece. Then he had the opportunity, thanks to his big sister, an archaeologist, to actually visit the very places that he would write about in this book: Athens and Delphi Greece. This book is his way of presenting the resultant worldly world view to the world. His dual characters are modeled on the counter-culture warrior that he became, and his fantasy fictional story is a reflection of the life he has lived and the world he has seen, finally fleshing out that tiny play he wrote 55 years ago.
