Suzy Kassem's Rise Up and Salute the Sun

Rise up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem - Suzy Kassem

From her ancestral homeland of Egypt to 7th Street in New York City, Suzy Kassem's hypnotic imagination transports readers into a mystical place filled with wisdom and infinite wonder -- a place where a little Egyptian girl can converse with the Sphinx, where an ordinary house mouse trapped under the floorboards of a senior center in Jersey can dream about exploring fields beyond his ordinary limits, and where a young woman named Peace can still crave a caramel apple from Coney Island -- while confined for eternity to the lonely hotel rooftop from which she leapt to her death twenty years ago.

A powerful collection of philosophical short stories, essays, and poetry laced with stardust and universal wisdom, Rise Up and Salute the Sun takes the reader on a transdimensional journey to explore the heart of one's true existence.
