About this product
- DescriptionWhats the Story? Reflections on a Life Grown Long is, in many ways, a kaleidoscopic chronicle of this ongoing search. By turns elegiac, humorous, sad, joyful, angry and often many of these at once this book of extremely short prose reflections entertains an abiding question for Lea: to what extent does my version of what happens in this life and in the world at large coincide with some imagined real version? If the author had an opinionated, positive answer to such a question when young, life has imposed a degree of humility upon him in older age, whether he wants it or t. Whats the Story? is less table, then, for the conclusions it reaches at any given point than for its compelling witness to what poet Wallace Stevens called the mind in the act of finding what will suffice.
