Bus 9 to Paradise: A Loving Voyage

Leo F. Buscaglia, Author Slack $16.95 (276p) ISBN 978-0-688-06293-4
The author writes in his familiar, zesty fashion in this successor to Loving Each Other and his previous bestsellers. Here the title describes a bus Buscaglia observed, prompting him to speculate on the diverse views of paradise envisioned by hopeful individuals. According to him, ""the more passionately we love many things, the closer we come to living our paradise NOW.'' The text contains examples of love's blessings in numerous situations. While Buscaglia admits it's not easy to be scorned as silly or naive, he insists that people must trust in loving passionately, answering cynics with the assurance tht life is wonderful, joy is our birthright. Among the subjects covered are love as a factor in relations with plants and animals, dealing with persons who betray us, maintaining dignity and self-respect, savoring food, creating a better world. 350,000 first printing; $200,000 ad/promo.
