Richard Singer Pens Memoir on Drug Addiction
by BWW News Desk - Jul 5, 2016

Richard Singer will be releasing his new book, Eastern Wisdom Western Soul in August of 2016 by Devorss Publications in California. Mr. Singer is a recovering drug addict who was once homeless, hopeless, penniless and suicidal. His journey of recovery has not been easy, however he continues to spread a message of hope. Richard states that, 'I do not want to waste another second of life. I will do anything to help those suffering out there. I know how it was personally and I want to help in any possible way.' Mr. Singer's raw and miraculous story recently went viral on Facebook and it is currently awaiting publication by the world's largest online addiction resource. Richard Singer's books have won awards and he has sold the rights in many different countries throughout the world. They are also translated into several different languages. His books have been reviewed and featured in many outlets including BBC in London, Publisher's weekly, Library Journal and Martha Stewart's Body and Soul Magazine. Richard wrote and published a majority of his books while living in the Cayman Islands, however he has now returned to the United States. Mr. Singer states that, 'My books are not only for reading, they are meant to be lived.' In addition he states that, 'My passion and purpose in life is to help human beings in anyway possible.' Eastern Wisdom Western Soul is your personal guide to living a mindful life. It is easily understood, non technical, and written in a style that is easily read. It teaches the reader to access their genuine being that lies deep within the soul. This little manual provides the reader with the knowledge and practical skills to detach from the confines of the ego and dive into the Ecstasy of the authentic self. It also includes the original interpretation of the 12 steps based on Eastern philosophy. Library Journal states, 'This little book has a definite place on the library shelf. What makes his book interesting is that-in an Asian context-the quotations are pan-cultural; that is, Chinese, Buddhist, Japanese, and Hindu sources stand side by side, implying, probably rightly, that all of Asian thought, considered together, is characteristically different from Western ways of thinking.'

Australian theatre's 'enfant terrible' Simon Stone, whose 2014 version of Ibsen's The Wild Duck at the Barbican memorably starred a live duck, has returned to take on Lorca's 1934 'tragic poem'. If some of the elemental lyricism has been lost in this updating, which trades rural Spain for contemporary London, it's a small price to pay for a raw, searing work that builds to a shattering climax.
