The Rainbow Horizon - A Tale of Goofy Chaos - Humor Series
Ghost Writer Writing

This is the most original, provocative, new ideas book I've read anywhere. It is all-inclusive, funny as hell, upbeat in a way more Alaskan Bush People than Mary Poppins, featuring folks of color in starring roles, interspersed with "good ol" white people in true Bugs Bunny, Warner Brothers style, while walking into a Bar...and falling down!

First Major Book Review for TRH
Professional Review:
This book is a great tribute to a great man, Ralph Ellison, author of Invisible Man. It inspired this work of literature, by being the exact opposite of this book: a less than forthright account of a Black man who somehow was the polar opposite of what Mr. Ellison actually was in real life. So the character in it reminded the author far too much of herself, and not of a typical Black man. She ended up writing a book that was a lot more like the actual life of Ralph Ellison than his fictive book ever will be.

Anyway...you travel to the little town of Rama, Washington. There, you meet four friends, eclectic sorts, three of color, one of white. The latter is an ex-Montanan who fled hillbilly feuding in a small town there. He left at 14, and has been running from his family's alcoholism ever since. In Rama, there is a bar called The Krakatoa, which Artie Blend haunts. But, he has a real use in life, and one Gabriella "Beau" Hooter Sancto, Mexican-American and many, many other things races to his side, as the Real Hero of this book. He is half Artie's age, and has found a mentor, Dad figure and friend in the white, blue eyed, blond Montanan who can't seem to leave it behind.

Saragina DeSoto, write par excellance who has no confidence in the writing field, chose dietary aide becoming dietician as her career path. Along the way, she runs into a distant cousin of hers, perhaps no relative at all, Caza Zooweiler, Polish, Central European, and Mexicana, mostly Mexicana at that, which shows on her as she's from slave labor in Eastern Washington State. Caze meets Artie and begins a 15 year long relationship with him. But Saragina has set her Black Lady cap for the Beau, who needs to be a hero and leave his father behind, the same way his real father, Donio, left his mother years ago, while Gabe "the Beau" cannot decide what to do with his life.

Tongue in cheek, acerbic, original, provocative without weighing you down, the book is an easy read, skips around lightly like a feather trying to find its weight in gold and doing so. It is a kitchen sink type of fiction based on fact novel, with the facts going out the window on a regular basis, Warner Brothers cartoon style. There is a baseball game between the normal, Freudian heterosexual (including all gay people) crowd on one side, and the "abnormal," barely visible Ku Klux Klan (I mean, weird white transvestites wearing old Army shoes and also driving little Kiwanis cars away at the end of the game, having lost by exactly one point - racism) and the baseball game is ethereal, unreal, fictionalized and altogether Absurdism.

The Civil Rights Movement is right-wing lampooned, and rightfully so. The left and right wings of politics are almost ritually skewered. Feminism takes a turn for the verse and for the worse combined. Laughs are abounding as you wonder why this book reels in a kind of 1980s daze, finding its feet at last as you come to the simple but slam bang ending, where Artie finds a way out of being an eternal drunk, drunk on bullets, knives, violence (all from the family and the Vietnam War he left behind) and especially alcohol and cigarettes, two of the worst things to befall Humanity...Artie ends up back with Caza, Gabe with his Saragina, and all is right with the world. The ending is telegraphed, as this book deals with and makes total fun of all writing styles whatsoever, including comedy writing itself.

A must read for those who "dig" or otherwise understand original, lack of categorical, unique books that are their own "thing" and not anyone else's in any way, shape or form. The author strove very hard to make it a unique, important yet unimportant book. You will enjoy cozying up to this peculiar, winsome, chic lit without being so heavy handed read. Racism is summarily made fun of, while sexism is uphead, half of it anyway, as one of the best things in life...while being skewered too, due to the importance of making babies happen, making housing happen, and making Life happen. Even when it has to be all over again, like building a new mansion from the ground up. Like saving Artie Blend from himself, like Mexico being a friendly enemy, Elmer Fudd versus Bugs Bunny...you will LYLO, be ROTFL, LOL, funny antics, nothing you need to take too seriously...you can put it down and pick it up later, and make phony promises to it you will fulfill. Read this magnanimously unique, freakish book!
