Meyer believes that each of us has a Timbuktu in our hearts and lives – the story of the quest for the elusive city of gold. The Obsession Book of Timbuktu is a book of love, obsession and desire. Meyer tells the fool’s history not only of a fabled African city but of his own hometown of Barrie, Ontario and the restless ambition of artists tranforming it from a vision to a reality. Part history, part tribute to the dying art of the lyric, The Obession Book of Timbuktu is a hymn and a poetic novel about the quest to make the impossible accessible.
