The Dalai Lama is caught in transit between lives. His soul finally lands in the body of one Gail Rachel Pomerantz. Game plan is Gail Rachel marries, conceives, and her first son inherits the Dalai Lama's soul. Only problem is that at the moment, Gail Rachel Pomerantz, rescued at the point of death from a near fatal car accident, is hanging suspended in a liquid nitrogen cryo-freeze tank.
Enter Victor Rand. Rand, a cryo-technician of Tibetan descent, is given a Holy Mission: to thaw and resuscitate Gail Rachel, so that the next incarnation of His Holiness the Dalai, may arrive. Victor, a latter-day Quixote, does this...and falls in love with Gail Rachel. They marry but do not live happily ever after. Rand can't stand her! Follow this madcap steeplechase, this excoriation of marriage, love, and romance, in the unlikely company of Victor Rand, Tristan Tzara, Aleister Crowley, and Dutch Schultz (just to name a few).
