SYNOPSIS: The Proprietor of the Theatre of Life, a novel of approx. 64,000 words by Donna LeClair

When The Proprietor of the Theatre of Life summons Emma Hockaday’s presence at a succession of movies bonded by sentient beings, Emma’s problematic world loops past in mystical flickers on the screen. Lives of visionaries from distinct eras, continents, and thresholds play out on the screen while agendas laze, sleeping in fragmented essence. Lessons unfold of diverse ethnicities, life conditions, and testimonies as the dynamics of wisdom and inspiration emerge, activate, and expand.

To a wandering spirit, there are moments so surreal, they could have come and gone without a thought. But, to The Proprietor of the Theatre of Life, it is a crosswalk between disciplined mind and hidden possibilities for eternal bliss, offering fresh pinnacles of observation, reality, and vibration.

Incorporated into the art of storytelling, the airing of historical facts and elevated fiction brings Emma closer to the sacredness of broader stories: the compassion of forgiving and liberating ourselves and others of the grief plaguing lineages for generations; helping humankind evolve into a unified whole and spirit wing into eternity. Gifting survival of this illusion christened earth. The mentality of one of many intricate worlds.

As Emma converses with such dynamic heroines as Maya Angelou, Sobonfu Some′, Anne Frank, Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, and Rosalind from RStar Foundation, she will use their courage and vision to piece her own fragile existence into something comprehensible and valuable, divested of the shadows of the past.

A golden offering from The Proprietor of the Theatre of Life.

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light. 

Vera Nazarian

Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.

Yehuda Berg

Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.


Hermann Hesse

One glance at a book and you will hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.
