This is a novel of a Divided Self, which lives separate existences that never meet until the very end. The 'Other', in this case, is oneself. "The Book from the Sky" is a journey into the outer space of the inside of the mind, which Robert Kelly explores with a surprising familiarity, as if he clearly sees into the dreamlike terrain of the unconscious. What begins as a novel of romantic adventure along a familiar formula (boy meets girl; boy and girl go on a journey together) slips into groundbreaking territory as the protagonist is literally split in two. A gripping story of a boy who becomes a man who meets his double, the drama is in what happens when one becomes two. In this case there are two selves, and they are cultivated in completely different ways. The end, when it comes, is inevitable.
