One of the most beloved and bestselling novels of spiritual adventure ever published, Ishmael has earned a passionate following among readers and critics alike. This special twenty-fifth anniversary edition features a new foreword and afterword by the author, as well as an excerpt from My Ishmael.

TEACHER SEEKS PUPIL.
Must have an earnest desire to save the world. Apply in person.

It was just a three-line ad in the personals section, but it launched the adventure of a lifetime.

So begins an utterly unique and captivating novel. In Ishmael, which received the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship for the best work of fiction offering positive solutions to global problems, Daniel Quinn parses humanity's origins and its relationship with nature, in search of an answer to this challenging question: How can we save the world from ourselves?

Praise for Ishmael

"As suspenseful, inventive, and socially urgent as any fiction or nonfiction you are likely to read this or any other year."--The Austin Chronicle

"Before we're halfway through this slim book . . . we're in Daniel Quinn's] grip, we want Ishmael to teach us how to save the planet from ourselves. We want to change our lives."--The Washington Post

"Arthur Koestler, in an essay in which he wondered whether mankind would go the way of the dinosaur, formulated what he called the Dinosaur's Prayer: 'Lord, a little more time ' Ishmael does its bit to answer that prayer and may just possibly have bought us all a little more time."--Los Angeles Times
