Wally & Kali

A new novel by Peter Ferko, Wally & Kali, about love, yoga, and life.

When Wally looks for the path to love, he finds a naked yogini, a smiling guru, and a ruthless goddess lighting the way.

Wally can’t figure out how to transcend his life-long string of not quite right relationships. His latest mismatch introduces him to yoga, and while she’s soon gone, Wally is hooked and books a vacation at an ashram. There Molly, naked and 20 years old, befriends him, then confounds his fatherly inclination toward her with a profession of love. But it’s Molly’s mom, Jane who ends up taking Wally to the altar.

Life is bliss for Jane and Wally; for Jane’s teenage son Dink; and even for Molly, who is surprised by her attraction to a lesbian. Havoc ensues when Dink’s girlfriend leaves him, and he falls under the torturous spell of unrequited desire, a torment reflected in an intertwined tale in the language of his job at the comic book store. Walt finds the challenge around this new kind of relationship — that with a son — the darkest he’s ever faced, and the whole family is pulled in.

Enter Kali, goddess of transformation. A joyful guru gets Dink to yoga class, and a tantric yogini– or is she a goddess?– takes the entire family on an unexpected journey.
