Dirk Dunbar’s Confessions of a Basketball Junkie offers a personal glimpse into the archetypal journey that we are all destined to navigate—from the call, departure, and tribulations to the return to the place and person we are meant to be. Filled with poetry and athletic anecdotes, mystical and humorous experiences, and truth-seeking explorations into our local and planetary purpose, this extraordinary memoir affirms the grandeur of being at home in the universe. While revealing the challenge and value of living a well-examined life, Dunbar takes us through remarkably relatable experiences that traverse the culture and “feel” of his small Northern Michigan birthplace to people and places in Iceland, Germany, Maine, and Florida. Highlighting how our experiences and relationships make us who we are, this compelling account of the human spirit stimulates compassion and tolerance, explores the teachings of Jesus, Buddha, Daoists, and Native Americans, and offers unique insights into literature, film, and music. All this while recapping a phenomenal, yet injury filled basketball career that is captivating, painful, and inspiring. The ideas are big, but simply and profoundly expressed. This book is sure to touch athletes, incite seekers, and enthrall human-interest readers worldwide.
