The Cult of Nostalgia


Thinking that her neurotic boyfriend, Simon, is planning a surprise wedding for her, Carly, a 30-year old life coach with no clue as to which direction any life should take, hurries across San Francisco in time to witness him marry a member of the Morningside cult.

Realizing that the newly-weds have her great-uncle’s diary and memoir, which she has yet to read, Carly follows the pair to Paris, determined to find out why the memoirs were stolen, and what the cult plan to do with them.

Locating Simon from clues found in Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, Carly’s story is interwoven with that of great-uncle Edward as he recalls revisiting Paris in the 1960s and writing (rather badly) about events he experienced in the 1920s when he rubbed shoulders (and more) with Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas.

The Cult of Nostalgia is a humorous romp and a moving account of yearning, searching for oneself and trying to find the true purpose of one’s existence.
