How do you take your coffee? Ms Prosperina is a genetic monster trying to take over the world by spiking the coffee at her Starry Eyed Coffee Hut chain ... and she'll stop at nothing. It's up to her unwitting creator, the geneticist Professor Quan, to stop her. In an attempt to correct his mistake, Professor Quan creates a network of people with the power of true love genetically coded within them. They alone might resist Ms Prosperina's attempt to change the course of humanity. Everything hangs in the balance when Eddie, altered at birth by Quan's genetic mutation powder, fails to follow his pre-ordained destiny. The trauma of his father's death has left Eddie drifting through a meaningless life and has caused him to stray from Quan's master plan. Will Quan succeed in helping Eddie regain the light behind his eyes and will they succeed in foiling Ms Prosperina's evil plans? Could the world really end at General Beauregard's 24-hour fried chicken restaurant?

Khaled Hosseini (Author of of The Kite Runner & A Thousand Splendid Suns) on Lefke Automatic/Destiny of Love: "This is lovely, moving work, with a sense of mystery, and the possibility of unexpected discovery, forever at hand. At times open ended, elusive, and abstract, Yusuf Misdaq 's poems can also be bold, emphatic, and unafraid." As the above quote indicates, this 6th installment of Yusuf Misdaq's poetry series takes a completely unexpected turn. The book begins as a poetic travelogue of a journey to the small Mediterranean village named in the books title; there Misdaq visits a living Saint of the Sufi tradition. The literary and poetic descriptions of this amazing and mysterious man are lively and enticing, leaving the reader feeling like Misdaq's travel partner, if not intimate friend. For anyone who has ever returned from a holiday feeling uplifted, inspired and refreshed (and is aware of the precious, fleeting nature of this lovely feeling) then this book surely enters into must-have territory. Not only is the brief (15 pages or so) description of the journey itself cataloged in rich language, with evocative colors, emotions, history and culture (there is even a glossary of terms and preface), but most inspiring of all, the author tries relentlessly to extend that special 'post-holiday high' in the second half of the book which takes place after returning home (or, "Back to the fake real world," as Misdaq puts it). At this point each poem (and occasional 'song') becomes more and more vivid than the last, and the dazzled reader will be left wondering how on Earth this poet is capable of conjuring up such unexpectedly metaphysical meanings from everyday city phenomena like cigarettes, tissue paper, mobile phones, parking spaces and trains. Finally, the 'Destiny of Love' mentioned in the title is indeed a poetic love story, that of falling in love just as the Spring of 2010 arrives. It is a perfect and well-described backdrop to fit the themes of the work. Lefke Automatic is clearly Misdaq's best attempt yet at catching the butterfly of life's beauty in his madly foraging, relentless, style-shifting net. At once the calmest, most personal, and deepest of all the previous books, this magic edition is for anybody truly interested in implementing spirituality and inspiration in their daily lives.
