In this revised edition of LeRoi, a rather ornery but 'successful-in-life' character finds himself stranded in the middle of nowhere. His fancy MG has allowed him to limp into a gas station with a diner-cum-motel on the other side of the highway. Subtly layered in symbol and metaphor, one soon realizes that the simplicity of this novel is only skin deep. The old mechanic, a study in laissez-faire and cool disdain, tries the patience of our hero. As a matter of fact, all members of the cast including the Queen who rules the diner, the pretty waitress and the lanky fast-order cook are highly complicated human beings. The enigmatic and moody old Chevy half ton pick-up truck Malcolm Clay borrows is unreliable, but does grant him the freedom to escape the confines of the motel and the frustration of his broken down MG. 'Ol' Reliable' guides him over a cattle guard, a mysterious unseen gateway into sanctuary, the oasis of a river that cuts through this otherwise barren wasteland where he can cast a fly into adventure-and misadventure-yet beyond that, healing waters for the soul. Could this perhaps be a modern day model of a questing Perceval and the Grail Legend's Fisherking? Full of magic, humor, and hope, Malcolm Clay must still wrestle with the demons of inner conflict in order to be freed from the burdens of the past and restore his inner kingdom to prosperity. Only time will tell if Malcolm is able to form the famous question-'Whom does the Grail serve?'

Mel Mathews is the author of 'The Chronicles of a Wandering Soul,' a series of novels that portray a modern man's struggles as he goes against cultural and religious norms, and the grains of his upbringings, to emerge a renewed man guided by his own inner truth and hard-won wisdom.
