Where Do We Go From Here?Book - 2001
World-weary Fred Kaufmann is in the midst of a classic midlife crisis. Long ago exchanging his dreams of becoming a celebrated film director - even he could see he didn't have what it took - he settled for marriage to tidy-minded, thoroughly competent Claudia, the owner of a successful vegetarian take-away. But Claudia has sold out to a fast-food chain and now Fred finds himself adrift - materially successful, but spiritually dissatisfied. Claudia finds a guru and the guru finds their teenage daughter Franka irresistible. So, in an attempt to wean Franka of her infatuation by exposing her to a large amount of brown rice and some very serious Buddhism, Frank sets out for the meditation centre in the South of France on a journey that only a hero can survive.
