For over 50 years, Los Angeles resident Enrique Serrato has been building an impressive collection of American, Chicano and Mexican art that now exceeds 6000 pieces covering ceramics, paintings, sculpture and outsider art. Unlike the Vogels, Mr. Serrato kept his collection private for more than 35 years, and only recently opened his collection to a small group of Los Angeleno artists and collectors. Mr. Serrato lives in a two-bedroom apartment and surrounds himself with his ever-growing collection which has been called Los Angeles’ best kept secret. Filmed by Patrick Kennedy.

This book is my follow up to The Quest For Gnosis and serves as a memoir of the brutal trials that await the willing initiate who seeks to find living magic in the crucible of raw existence.
I give the brutally honest account of a depressed psychedelic vagrant in the struggle to transform while floating through the highways and cities of the American wasteland from LA to New York, to South Carolina, the Badlands, Seattle and the hills of Humboldt county, encountering violence, passion, absolute loss and the blinding light of personal revelation. I hope you will come with me on this fantastic psychedelic tale!
