Amy Wallace’s memoir of her complex relationship with Carlos Castaneda plunges readers deep into the reality of the Castaneda cult and the psychological terrors it perpetrated. With the skill of a master storyteller, Wallace recounts early meetings with Castaneda, shares previously unpublished material straight from the Nagual, and explores the aftermath of Castaneda’s death and the long term effects of his legacy. Insightful and unwaveringly honest, Sorcerer’s Apprentice is simultaneously a love story, a cautionary tale about the dangers of giving one’s power to another, and a joyous account of healing and self-affirmation.
