Fiction. YOU, ME, AND THE INSECTS is cumulative, thenarrative, detail by detail, drawing the reader into Gina's tense andecstatic experiences as she travels from the East Village to south India tostudy with a Brahmin acharya, a master teacher of meditation, philosophy andhatha yoga. While negotiating daily life in a third world country, Gina alsoconducts a careful examination of her present reactions, as well as her lifeduring the 70s in Detroit when she lived in a bohemian community with herlover and family.
