520    An exhilarating memoir about one woman’s globe-
       trotting journey of inspiring awakening and self-
       discovery. Shaken by the loss of her father, drained by 
       her job at the United Nations, and conflicted over failed 
       relationships, Natasha Scripture asked herself the 
       question at the heart of her anxiety: What is my purpose? 
       The answer was not about finding love; it was about 
       recognizing its source. The result is Man Fast, a true and
       intimate spiritual detective story. With courage, honesty,
       and wit, Natasha shares the story of her awakening. 
       Starting with the decision to fast from dating, she 
       embarks on a journey that takes her from New York to an 
       ashram in southern India to toiling in a vineyard on Mount
       Etna to a solo safari in southern Tanzania. In stepping 
       away from the modern demand to couple up, Natasha finally 
       finds a reflective space where she can be fully aware: of 
       her grief, of her identity, and of love as a mystical, 
       ever-present force. An antidote to a culture that prizes 
       finding the right man, Man Fast is an emotionally charged 
       journey that leaves us with a greater understanding of 
       ourselves and the world around us.
