Little did Amy Wallace know that her first meeting with Carlos Castaneda would begin a 20-year friendship, eventually leading to a life-changing love affair. The elusive Castaneda told Amy that her late father had appeared to him in a dream, extracting from Castaneda a promise to take care of her. Wallace came to accept this, falling deeply in love with Castaneda. Eventually, she also fell under the spell of this brilliant, domineering man, becoming a member of his devoted following. Sorcerer's Apprentice examines Wallace's life within the group and her dependence on its leader, with his dangerous combination of charisma and cruelty. The story tracks two people approaching an affair with opposite agendas: Castaneda wanted to make Wallace a "sorcerer"; she wanted to make him a lover. Along with numerous photographs, this is an intimate, riveting, and controversial story that serves as a cautionary tale, providing a rare inside glimpse into Castaneda's inner circle and life. --Amazon.com
