The Drawing of the Three has everything, time travel, the mafia, naked gunfights, the drama of getting out of a drug bust, the simple joys of Pepsi and Hot Dogs and how they are experienced by someone who's never known them, schizophrenic paraplegics, the civil rights movement, a race against death, a love story, how, by following your path, you can get back what you thought was lost, and of course, a great unimaginable quest.
