Paired with a mysterious teacher named Shivas Irons, he is led through a round of phenomenal golf, swept into a world where extraordinary powers are unleashed in a a backswing governed by true gravity. A night of adventure and revelation follow, and lead to a glimpse of Seamus MacDuff, the holy man who haunts a ravine off Burningbush's thirteenth fairway--one they call Lucifer's Rug.Murphy's account reveals the possibilities for transcendence that resides in the human soul, and through mystic-philosopher Shivas Irons, the reader, like Murphy, becomes drawn into new worlds by this ancient and haunting game.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Michael MurphyPublisher: Penguin BooksPublished: 10/01/1997ISBN: 9780140195491Pages: 240Weight: 0.43lbsSize: 7.78h x 5.24w x 0.65dReview Citations: Library Journal 10/01/1998 pg. 141Publishers Weekly 08/25/1997
