from the foreword by Wallace Shawn
Whether you're a happy person or an unhappy person, whether you've had good luck or bad luck, this book will make you feel more alive in a way few books can. ... It will wake you up, however awake or asleep you think you are now.
from the afterword by Pasquale Verdicchio
And, although it is a radio play, a voice is not necessary to hear its alarm. … It [is] a diary of an indictment. … More importantly, it is a diary of unveiling and becoming.
