Retiring history professor Perry Gregson wonders whether it had to be this way. Should he have known to turn down a semester abroad so he would have been with his chronically ill little sister when she passed away? Could he have avoided turning her death into a template for severing his romantic bonds? The Use of Regret is Perry’s eternally recirculating journey through the truths and fictions and fantasies of his life, a trek that points up parallels between the human mind and the United States, each of which is simultaneously a single entity and a constitution of hundreds of millions of living parts. With a soundtrack of Pink Floyd, Lou Reed, Kenny Rogers, Modest Mouse, Kate Bush, and David Bowie scoring his internal roadtrip, Perry scours his psychic landscape for escape from his cell of self, a way to find within a life already lived, a life in which (as The Cure sang during his childhood) “no one ever knows or loves another,” a means to connect with the already-lost, “to atone, to make amends, pay tribute to your failures, you can’t really make restitution but you do your best, put in the effort anyway, willingly, that’s how you want to be now, no regrets, no regrets.”

About the Author:

Greggory Moore lives in a historical landmark in Long Beach, CA. Aside from doing things with words, he also does percussion/vocals/hype for the band Tall Walls (tallwalls.bandcamp.com). THE USE OF REGRET, which took him about either years to write, is his first novel. His follow-up, which is looking like it's going to take about the same amount of time, is in-progress.

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 170 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.4in.The sudden death of Perry Gregsons chronically ill little sister impels him to return from a semester abroad in Amsterdam to Southern California, his newfound emotional growth stunted by guilt and the parental modeling from which he had just begun to break free. Years later at the University of Washington he reconnects with his Amsterdam girlfriend, though his failure to have developed a capacity for true intimacy dooms their love. Eventually obtaining a Ph. D. in philosophy and a history professorship, he enters into a relationship with a student, wherein the insidious patterns of Perrys life continue to play out, even as her adoration of Pink Floyd and ways of coping with his existential doubt offer him escape from his cell of self. The intricately interconnected 100 sections of The Use of Regret are a (re)collection of Perrys life formed by Perry himself as truths and fictions and fantasies in (to quote a seminal mind theorist within the novel) an imaginative reconstruction, or construction, built out of the relation of our attitude towards a whole active mass of organized past reactions or experience. With a substratum of meditations on the paradoxical unions of singularity and plurality, separateness and togetherness, language and the non-linguistic, The Use of Regret is Perrys attempt to find within a life already lived, a life in which (as The Cure sang during his childhood) no one ever knows or loves another, a means to connect with the already-lost, to atone, to make amends, pay tribute to your failures, you cant really make restitution but you do your best, put in the effort anyway, willingly, thats how you want to be now, no regrets, no regrets.
