The word egout is the French word for sewer or drain and refers to the honorary title conferred upon Rina Hands by Mr. Gurdjieff during her stay with him in Paris. This was during the last few months of his life from August, 1948 to October, 1949. It was one of several such titles which Mr. Gurdjieff used during those extraordinary meals. With these titles and the help of a liberal supply of alcohol, he was able to get beyond the facade of those present, expose what was behind the mask, or illustrate some particular aspect of his ideas. Rina wrote this diary primarily for herself, for she was certain even then of the importance of those days. It is only now, over fifty years later, that we have the privilege of looking in on a short chapter of one person's life. ~ From the foreword by Norman Richards. Hardbound and Handbound.
