Description
With the publications of Communion and Transformation, America was riveted by Whitley Strieber's strange and exciting stories of encounters with alien presences. And, with Breakthrough, Strieber continued the saga, giving readers an up-to-date account of these recurring visitations. Now, in what might be considered a prequel to all three books - and, in many ways, the conclusion of the journey he began in Communion - Strieber gives us The Secret School, his quest for the meaning of his encounters.
Jumping between a child's-eye view and an adult's hindsight, Strieber vividly re-creates an adventure that stretches across decades, landing (or rather, lifting off) at the place his new life started when he met extraterrestrials.
