From acclaimed fiction writer Kyle Minor emerges a collection of
essays all about disappearing.

Considering a wide scope of cultural, historical,
spiritual, and philosophical figures and ideas, Minor assembles a collection of
essays centered on the concept of disappearance. Considering subjects like ghosts (think
Shakespeare and The Sixth Sense), lost temples, professional erasure and strategic
exile, these essays dig deep into the cultural and historical archives of our civilization.
Minor's keen wit and perception ensure one thing: readers will never forget this book.
