The Hypnotist’s Assistant
by Richard DeVall
Genre: Coming of Age
When 13 year old Gary Crockett hypnotizes Earl Lancaster and Earl stands from his wheelchair everything changes for both of them. Gary suspects Earl of lying about his paralysis and Gary’s mom thinks Earl is sexy and a business genius. Before long all three need to leave town in a hurry.
This coming of age tale is full of surprises and quirky characters, twisted circumstances and weird resolutions. It’s a breezy look at race relations, ladyboys, virginity, snake biting churches and meditation.
The novel is a one day read and sprinkled with humor.
The Hypnotist’s Assistant explores healing, romance, religion, deception, dysfunction, inspiration, gender, addiction and loss.
What begins as an extraordinary event ends with new found love, true friendship and hope. Bottom line – this book ultimately does what books do, it brings the reader entertainment and escape.
