'A rambling literary essay on the nature of ecstasy.'--Provided by the Publisher.

Notes

  • Dedication: For my grandmothers, Leah and Magda. They don't make them like that anymore.
  • Epigraph: It is not necessary that you leave the house.
    Remain at your table and listen.
    Do not even listen, only wait.
    Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone.
    The world will present itself to you for its
    unmasking, it has no choice, in ecstasy it will
    writhe at your feet. - Franz Kafka
