Cosmic Banditos: A Contrabandista's Quest for the Meaning of Life

Mr. Quark is a down-on-his-luck pot smuggler hiding out in the mountains of Columbia with his dog, High Pockets, and a small band of banditos led by the irascible José. Times are lean, and to liven up their exile, José decides to mug a family of American tourists. Among the spoils are physics texts, which launch Mr. Quark on a sidesplitting, boisterous adventure north to California, where he confronts the owner of the books with his own theories.

Publisher's Summary

Mr. Quark is a down-on-his-luck pot smuggler hiding out in the mountains of Columbia with his dog, High Pockets, and a small band of banditos led by the irascible José. Times are lean, and to liven up their exile, José decides to mug a family of American tourists.

Among the spoils are physics texts, which launch Mr. Quark on a sidesplitting, boisterous adventure north to California, where he confronts the owner of the books with his own theories on relativity, on the nature of the universe, and on looking for the meaning of life in all the wrong places.

    "One of the truly great and unique books!"

    If you are one of the lucky people who found this gem before it's resurgence and 2nd printing but have been putting off getting the audio version stop reading this and just buy it already....

    For the rest of you:

    I loved the audio version but seriously read a physical copy of the thing first. This is just one of those books that will be better if you can put it down and really think about the insanity that you just read from time to time.

    "A Time Traveling Footnote"

    The most fun you'll have learning quantum physics. I would write more but I have other things to do right now, mainly psychotropic drugs and the dodging of flying debris.
