In highly polished prose filled with humor and perception, this individual take on what it means to be a writer offers insight into aesthetics, metaphysics, ethics, and logic. The witty aphorisms and essays draw from the author's influencesBlake, Cervantes, Kierkegaard, Neitzsche, Baudelaire, and Kafkaand comment on the writing process. This epistemology is at once literary criticism of these influences and a deep and tender philosophical chronicle of a writer's life.
