"There were some advantages to Jimmy and David's long strange involvement with the Ouija board. For instance, it is possible to see the adventure as a last ditch effort on the part of my friends to save their marriage. Night after night, as long as their collaboration continued, David and Jimmy were bound together in an intellectual, spiritual, and emotional partnership that necessarily excluded other people. Their union was approved by, even demanded by, powerful spirits........But, though the Ouija board drew my friends closer, at the same time it cut them off from everyone else. Compared to the glamorous companionship and unconditional love and flattery offered by divine beings, gods and ghosts, archangels and muses and supernatural peacocks, real sometimes began to seem drab, faded, even unreal."Binding: Paperback
