questions of perspective

contemporary fiction

No one knew it at the time, but April 19, 2011, was the most important day in the history of the world.


After his only friend and colleague, John Manta, disappears without a word, Dave Randall further entrenches himself in the humdrum life of an unenthusiastic lawyer. But once he begins to understand what happened, he embarks on a journey to uncover the deeper meanings and implications of John's fate.


Accompanied by Peaches the cat, Dave uproots his life and reinvents himself in the midst of his search. Along the way, he is haunted by his piecemeal understanding of John's fate and what it means for his existence. Little does Dave know, his journey of self-discovery will have ramifications that extend far beyond the borders of his own little life.



"Being best friends with God has its benefits…and its drawbacks. Author Daniel Maunz examines both in QUESTIONS OF PERSPECTIVE, a quirky and endearing novel about friendship, love, and the meaning of life."

"Although classified as a paranormal fantasy, I personally am unable to categorize this book at all. It covers spirituality, law, psychology, theology, the question of free will, the seemingly random occurrences that affect humanity, and so much more. It spans so far and wide, and does so beautifully."
