Barry Gifford's first full-length novel is an unusual, captivating exploration into the life of a single man. Written in the form used by the classic Japanese writer Sei Shonagon in her Pillow Book - short, essayistic stories or tales woven around a central moral - this landscape is the self-portrait of a man, who, often swept away by passion in his youth, approaches his later years with increasing distance and an almost Zen-like tranquility.
