The Journey: Erudite
by David Cocklin

ERUDITE [er-yoo-dahyt] Characterized by great knowledge; learned or scholarly. The Journey: Erudite follows the travels of Tection and Julian, as they venture off into an exotic new world, full of discovery, sprinkled with revelation, and driven by an endless desire to encounter new experiences; all the while developing a growing understanding of themselves. Tection is running from soul-crunching events, looking for resolution, perhaps even absolution; all the while carrying the trauma of those events deep in his psyche. And Julian, years later, is fulfilling his own life-long desire to travel, to experience new lands and new people, never expecting the serendipitous events and mystical entanglements that are to ensue. With a passion for language and hypnotic storytelling, author David Cocklin introduces an eclectic assortment of characters, using their unique personas to illustrate the wonder of humanity, the coming-of-age process, and the inevitable twists of fate that can push the past into the future. The Journey: Erudite illuminates the complex array of relationships that is forged over time; parent, child, friend, and lover, leaving the enchanted reader with an unavoidable desire to embrace self-examination.

"A lovely, lyrical, enchanting book ... positively hypnotic." —Rhonda Hayter, Editor
