Summary
"Taking its inspiration - and, for that matter, its form - from Ishmael's abandoned "Cetological Dictionary" in Moby-Dick, this extraordinary, highly original work brings meditations on myth, representation, language, nature, consciousness, and notions of spiritual quest into constantly new relations. From "Accuracy" to "Wound," from "Adam" to "Void," and from "Babel" to "Silence," the cross-referential, highly associative entries make up an utterly singular work of art."--Jacket
