"A mindblower" - Deadline Hollywood; "Transfixing" - Time Out New York; "Haunting and enthralling"- The Wall Street Journal; "An astonishing work of theater" - The New York Times.

1969: Loren McIntyre makes contact with the elusive Mayoruna 'cat people' of the Amazon's Javari Valley. He follows them - into the wild depths of the rainforest. When he realizes he is lost, it is already too late.

Stranded and helpless, McIntyre must adjust to an alien way of life. Gradually, he finds his perception of the world beginning to change, and a strange relationship starts to develop with the Mayoruna chief - is McIntyre really able to communicate with the headman in a way that goes beyond words, beyond language? Petru Popescu's gripping account of McIntyre's adventures with the Mayoruna tribe, and his quest to find the source of the Amazon, is reissued here to coincide with Complicite's acclaimed new stage production inspired by McIntyre's incredible story.

About the Author: Born in Bucharest in 1944, Petru Popescu was Communist Romania's most provocative young novelist, before he was forced to defect and start writing in English. His Romanian novels Captured and Burial of the Vine are classics of the resistance against totalitarian art. Moving to the United States, he wrote movies including The Last Wave and Death of an Angel, before returning full time to authoring books. The Encounter: Amazon Beaming, Almost Adam, The Return, and The Oasis made him known worldwide. In The Encounter, he renders the discoverer of the Amazon's source, Loren McIntyre, as an unforgettable protagonist for his unique experiences in the rain forest among indigenous people, and for his inward explorations, pursuing the potential to win one's spiritual freedom. Freedom is clearly Popescu's signature motif. He is married to screenplay writer Iris Friedman, and they live in Los Angeles.

Born in London in 1957, Simon McBurney is an actor, director and writer, as well as the founder and artistic director of the acclaimed UK theatre company Complicite, whose productions include The Master and Margarita and A Disappearing Number.
