Editorial Reviews

Review

Danusha Goska is a lyrical, forceful writer with a huge heart and talent to burn. Her inspiring observations embody the best vision of which we humans are capable. Goska deserves widespread attention. (Larry Dossey, author, Reinventing Medicine and The Power of Premonitions) A powerful and evocative reflective journey. (Paul Loeb, author, Soul of a Citizen.) A quirky, intricately woven, multi-layered love story, a debate that couldn't be between greater opposites: a devout Catholic schoolteacher and a dogmatic atheist author. (Stuart Balcomb, composer, Gravity and Grace)

About the Author

"Save Send Delete" is one hell of a book.
Liron Rubin
Her ability to inspire us to look within ourselves through her faith in God, her pain and suffering and her life experiences will bring the reader to wanting more.
AnnaMtz
The literary device of presenting one side of a dialogue, along with thoughts not conveyed in the form of deleted messages, was very interesting and challenging.

Warning: Do not read this book if you have to go to work in the morning. I started "Save Send Delete" on Tuesday evening, thinking I'd read for a couple of hours and then sack out. I didn't put the book down until 3 a.m., four hours before the dreaded beeping noise of the alarm clock. The book is that good. Or, as Goska would no doubt write, *that* good.

"Save Send Delete" is not what I expected it to be--to wit, a "Dangerous Liaisons" for Christians. It is, instead, a moving argument for faith in this vale of tears. Rarely have I read so convincing an argument for the religious worldview, and rarely have I been so powerfully moved by a book that is not a novel. No, "Save Send Delete" is not a Christian book; it is a book for anyone who wishes to understand something about love, compassion, forgiveness, suffering, for anyone who grapples with the following questions: Why I am here? WTF is it all about? What is God?

"Save Send Delete" is beautifully written. The style, which achieves the admirable feat of being both ice-cold and white-hot, is electrifying. Goska is never preachy, condescending, or, worse, sentimental. She states her arguments elegantly and clearly, and she has the wit and grace to remember that there are, after all, other opinions, other worldviews. One passage (I won't tell you which) helped me to resolve an issue that has been vexing me for some time. For that, I am grateful to the author.

"Save Send Delete" is funny. Goska's good-natured ribbing of her interlocutor is so funny (and, at times, raunchy) that even a potty-mouthed sailor like yours truly was impressed. I particularly liked this: "That's why you stopped believing in God? Because your debate opponent's stack of three-by-five cards was taller than yours? You p**sy.

Happened upon this book quite by accident. A fortuitous one at that. It's been too long since I've read a non-formulaic, original work, let alone one that openly bares the soul of the author and makes you respect them for honestly portraying life as filled with shades of grey instead of being just black or white. Perhaps it was David Eggers "Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" that last moved me this way.

Ms. Goska's intelligent and eloquent use of the English language vividly and realistically conveys a broad range of human emotions, including, wonder, inquisitiveness, love, lust, anxiety, exhilaration, disappointment, anger, loneliness, fear and hope. Mira, who represents Ms. Goska in this story, is the protagonist. She invites us along on a private journey of discovery as her act of reaching out to a stranger, a famous academic, takes her on a long road of self exploration, winding down many paths. Ultimately, breaking from the day to day correspondence, the book fast-forwards several years into the future with Mira reflecting back on their intense relationship.

Told in the form of a series of first person emails, we are allowed to see only Mira's side of the correspondence with the academic, Lord Randolph Court-Wright. In this book, Lord Court-Wright is a famous atheist. Mira, on the other hand, is a devoutly Catholic professor, who lives modestly in relative obscurity. Although their discussion initially begins as a heated debate over the existence of God, it quickly goes well beyond that, and shows how individuals relate, interact, fight, fall in love and seek meaning through themselves and through others. Since readers only see only Mira's correspondence, Lord Court-Wright is viewed through her reaction to his emails. Each passage is time stamped.

Danusha V. Goska has a hit on her hands with her latest work Save Send Delete.

Goska writes like Roseanne Barr does standup. No foolin' and to the barbed point with lotsa chuckles along the way. Her writing reminds me of the best of Tom Robbins books which are always irreverent and challenging like Robbins himself.

Goska's heroine spares no one, especially herself, in her quest for the metaphysical truth of our age or any other. Mira's e-mail correspondence with a famous atheist she watches pontificate on Bill Moyers Journal on her black and white TV and writes to, initiating a frolic of a virtual romance and some of the best one-liners ever written, deserves the widest audience possible.

Think beach book, think train tome, think plane paperback, think graduation gift, think library literature!

And, please, ask your local library to purchase a copy. Thank you.

Save Send Delete is already a hit but buying this romp of a book will ensure that honor.

Are you paying attention Bill Maher?

When I picked the book up I could not put it down. This is a truly remarkable work - one side of a dialogue that debates the existence of God, and veers off into other very personal matters. The literary device of presenting one side of a dialogue, along with thoughts not conveyed in the form of deleted messages, was very interesting and challenging. I enjoyed the exercise.

I am so impressed - with the scope and depth of Goska's knowledge; with her insight and understanding of human nature; with her ability to craft a compelling line of persuasive argument; with her explanation and inversion of arguments that to me seemed compelling in support of lack of faith; and with her ability to put it into an understandable form.

"Save Send Delete" was the best thing I have read regarding faith or lack of faith in God. It gave me quite a few things to think about.
