Little has been known about P. D. Ouspensky, other than that he was a follower of the early twentieth-century esoteric master G. I. Gurdjieff, and that he first disseminated Gurdjieff's unsettling psychology in the classic In Search of the Miraculous.
This biography moves Ouspensky center stage. Against a backdrop of the Russian Revolution, the First World War, and a cosmopolitan Europe entre deux guerres, here is the story of his dramatic spiritual struggle with the man who changed his life and from whom he was never able, finally, to separate. Like that of Castaneda and Don Juan - or Faust and Mephistopheles - it is a tale fraught with insight, humility, courage, and mystery. What happened to turn Ouspensky, the earnest seeker of spiritual wisdom, against his enigmatic teacher? Did he sabotage himself, or did his powerful master derail him?
