This bonus is an excerpt from my novel, Incarnation and a Cliff Notes-style cheat sheet below in the notes. The book follows a journalist, an actor, a writer, and a programmer whose dreams and desires play out together on the global stage, again and again. Each time, they find meaning as they spin on life's mysterious wheel of fortune.
SPOILER ALERT: Excerpt from the Cheat Sheet
- In another incarnation, when Ryoko is married to Joey, Lucy is asked to appear as a guest interviewer, where she meets Joey. After the show, Ryoko and Joey become fast friends with Lucy and Billy.
- Krishna, who ended his affair with Ryoko for the sake of Veritage, hears from Kamalita, who plans to visit New York. After their meeting, at a challenging dinner with Ryoko, Joey, Lucy, and Billy, Krishna wonders if there’s a chance for them to have a relationship.
- Krishna doesn’t follow up with Kamalita, except to write checks to fund her research. He lives in a state of indecision and has meaningless affairs. A Hare Krishna yogi in Union Square tells him he’s going to move to India. Confused and distracted by the yogi’s prophecy, he falls down the subway stairs to his death.
