Picks and Pans Review: There's No Such Place as Far Away

UPDATED 05/21/1979 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/21/1979 at 01:00 AM EDT

by Richard Bach

The second dumbest book to be published this year is another Bach fantasy (J. L. Seagull, Illusions). It opens: "I began my journey in the heart of the hummingbird you and I met long ago." It ends: "Fly free and happy beyond birthdays and across forever, and we'll meet now and then when we wish, in the midst of the one celebration that never can end." The slender volume is filled primarily with Ron Wegen's heavy and explicit illustrations. It looks a bit like a children's book, but no child would put up with this silly nonsense for a minute. Dogs probably wouldn't like it either. (Delacorte, $6.95)
