About the Book:

SOMEONE said of this book: "A fast-paced, minimalist read that succeeds - paradoxically - in being accessible and mysterious at the same time. Not a word is wasted. It is probably a little too demanding of the casual reader". THAT last sentence is probably the most important to keep in mind when you embark on reading/commenting on this draft. I PUT a lot of trust in you, the intrepid reader. I assume you don't need everything explained to you in the first dozen paragraphs; I assume that you will be willing to suspend your disbelief for long enough to allow things to slowly click into place and resolve into some sort of coherence. I hope you can trust me to explain things when they need to be explained, and not before. I'VE NEVER attempted this sort of writing before. All feedback is very, very welcome. But if you're not a fan of this sort of (less commercial) writing, please don't waste your time with it - there's plenty of other books to read!

About the Author:

Author's Note:

If someone can clue me in on how to insert paragraph breaks into the above full description, I'd be very grateful!
