In Message in the Bottle, Walker Percy offers insights on such varied yet interconnected subjects as symbolic reasoning, the origins of mankind, Helen Keller, Semioticism, and the incredible Delta Factor. Confronting difficult philosophical questions with a novelist's eye, Percy rewards us again and again with his keen insights into the way that language possesses all of us.

From the Publisher:

"These essays have a way of quickening the spirit and cleansing the sight." -The New Republic
"Walker Percy is that admirable thing-a man who has fallen in love with an idea, an analytical, academic, philosophical man, in fact. Yet the novelist in him cannot help but come out."-JOHN CIARDI, The Saturday Review "Walker Percy has an intellectual range and rigor few American novelists can match."-THOMAS LECLAIR, The New York Times Book Review

About the Author:

Walker Percy is the author of over ten books, many of which were bestsellers, and he is considered one of the greatest American writers of our time.
