Description

"Jenny is the future of nonfiction in America. What an absurdly arrogant statement to make. I make it anyway. Watch."--John D'Agata

"Yes, Aristotle, there can be pleasure without 'complete and unified action with a beginning, middle, and end.' Jenny Boully has done it."--Mary Jo Bang

A book with only beginnings and endings, all invented. Jenny Boully opens and closes more than fifty topics ranging from physics and astronomy to literary theory and love. A brilliant statement on interruption, impermanence, and imperfection.

Jenny Boully is the author of The Body: An Essayand one love affair]*. Born in Thailand, she currently divides her time between Texas and Brooklyn.
