Overview

The fruit Adam ate in paradise was pathos. The other fruit was happiness. And though he may have tasted it then, we still hunger for it. In Mesopotamia, Bruce Meyer explores the various paradises that are both lost and found in the world of the present and the realms of the past. Meyer takes his readers on a voyage of discovery in search of that essence of humanity that is never quite cut off from us, no matter how aflame the angel’s sword may be.
