The San Diego Union-Tribune hosts its Festival of Books every year, inviting publishers to showcase new works. Whether itís the first ever novels published by aspiring creators or a new book by longtime authors, visitors will find plenty to check out among the exhibits.

Jungís writing is often praised for its highly visual and scenic imagery. At the same time, however, he holds a BA in Anthropology, and his knowledge allows his writing to touch heavily on the human experience. The results are novels that take readers across various locales while interplaying with their charactersí complex dramas.

In ďThe Sirenís Refrain,Ē these characters are Leon Riser, a famous travel writer, and novelist confronted with the search for his estranged lover, the famed singer-songwriter Lou Ann Catskill. For over 20 years, the pair had an on-and-off affair that exposed each other to their ugliest weaknesses. Lou Ann had been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, which was the source of many painful memories for Leon. And as the story progresses, the pair must finally address the regret, pain, and loss they had both felt while confronting the reality of their advancing years.
