"BIPOLAR BUFFALO" BOOK TITLE:
"This is a superbly written and very interesting and emotional book. But why did you decide on the "Bipolar Buffalo" title when it offers so much more than the bipolar encounters?" (from a reader's email to the author).
Yes, there is much more - encounters & stories about notable people, including comedians like Steve Allen, Bill Cosby and Dick Shawn. Other people like inventors, architects, immigrants, a saint, and Black and Native Americans.
Places and Cities, including Denver, Las Vegas and New Orleans. And national events like Hurricane Betsy, racial segregation, Vietnam and the cultural changes in the1940s thru the1960s.
The author's journey, reflecting the underdog, is a search for inner self & an authentic meaning to life. But it is a love story that drives the book - it's central theme. It's "need" is the search for love and to be loved in return. The book's Set-up, Confrontations & Conflicts, and Resolution are directed towards that theme.
The meaning of " BIPOLAR BUFFALO" is a metaphor that refers to how we see things. Its meaning is ontological, metaphysical - searching for what is real, the essence of things.
The book title’s origin goes back to a talk with Native Americans
during a game of pool in Oregon in the 1960s - How early white people saw the
American Bison compared to how seen by those Native Americans. There is nothing
innate, nothing intrinsically "good" or "bad" about the
animal but how humans make judgments upon that being.... or person or event -
done with the limited personal/cultural baggage humans carry.
The book is also about judgments and more specifically, pre-judgments (prejudice). Being
bipolar, or Black, or Red, or Jewish, or Polish, coming from the working class,
from Buffalo – how we see and are seen.
Following this conversation I write .... " I didn't reflect on this polarity right then, but it did begin right there, the first inkling I had of the buffalo as a bipolar animal—bipolar from a human perspective.."
