Meher Baba's Man in Europe, a Memoir of Don Stevens
by Michael Morice
I think of this as a biographical memoir of Don, because it is told largely through the lens of my own relationship with him.The story begins with his momentous arrival from California into the vibrant London Baba scene of the late 196os. It tells of his impact on the London Baba world in general, and in particular on the group of mainly young individuals who met with him regularly for the next 16 or so years. It follows him to France, where Don made his home in the mid 1970s, and later to India where, towards the end of his long life, he accompanied several of what were called the 'Beads On One String' tours. I end with a consideration of Don's writing, which was really an opportunity for me to think about him in a more reflective way. This is also true of the section about the heartfelt thoughts about forgiveness which Don came to in his closing years.

I like Michael's story of his connection with and understanding of Don because it brought me closer to both of them. It is hard to imagine that anyone interested in Meher Baba and His Advent would not find this book fascinating; and it is impossible to think that anyone who knew Don would not enjoy and greatly appreciate this book.

This memoir is a tender story which also, between the lines, reveals Don's integrity and our uncertainties, our generation's naiveties and determination. We were so fortunate to fall into the company of Stevens, and of each other, and to catch the glance, the nazar of Meher at that crucial period.
