Richard Grossinger, an anthropologist by training, a cultural rebel by inclination, and supposed heir apparent to the great, eponymous Catskill resort by birth, presents an intense, personal story in the form of a nonfiction novel. GrossingerMoreRichard Grossinger, an anthropologist by training, a cultural rebel by inclination, and supposed heir apparent to the great, eponymous Catskill resort by birth, presents an intense, personal story in the form of a nonfiction novel.

Grossinger recounts old dreams, lists every college course in which he enrolled, and enumerates the courses he taught. Then theres the tarot, tai chi, and homeopathic studies- the poets and baseball heroes- the shamans and Edgar Cayce- the UFOs and monuments on Mars. He recalls his mean mother and painfully troubled brother, as well as multiple fathers and a phalanx of counterculture colleagues.

Often it sounds like a transcript from an analysts couch. Still, Out of Babylon is a well-written personal story, ultimately sad and disquieting because it rings true.
