Book Description HTML
This is a book of biographical fiction. Parts of it are true while other parts are completely fictionalized. It is about an emotionally fragile, clinically depressed thinking man who is in search of meaning and purpose not only in his life but all life. The story opens with a failed suicide attempt. Finding himself placed in a mental institution, his search for meaning and purpose continues. He examines life from all sides and angles in a desperate attempt to find something, anything tangible he can accept in his discerning, thoroughly questioning mind. His conclusion, in the end, is as stark as it is real.
