Synopsis: For a period of just over a year, Harry Mathews set about following Stendhal?s dictum for writers of ?twenty lines a day, genius or not.? What resulted is a book that is part journal, parts writer?s manual, and part genius. First undertaken as a kind of discipline, the work molds itself into a penetrating reflection on daily events in Mathews?s life, his friends, himself, and the act of writing.

Product Description: diaristic "20 lines a day, genius or not"
