To Set A Light In Every Tunnel presents a poetic, autobiographical narrative. The story is a triumph of the process of building identity. Part confession, part affirmation the book highlights the detailed and tangled pathways of experience and memory. It touches universal themes such as courage in view of fear, trust in view of self-doubt, and intimacy in view of distance that, given the dimension of time, constitute a life. The willingness to refine identity is as natural as a stone being sculpted into form. The author has dexterously woven many threads together in a book flows and is a lean and fast paced read.
