by Lars Iyer

A tale of philosophy and damp! This book is totally bizarre and quite surreal but oddly thought-provoking and strangely I even found it quite touching. You will either love it or hate it.


How's it come to this?, W. says. What wrong turn did he make? He was like Dante, he says, lost in a dark forest. - 'And there you were', he says, 'the idiot in the forest'. I was always lost, wasn't I? I didn't even know I was lost, but I was lost. Or perhaps I was never lost. Perhaps I belonged in the forest, W. muses. Perhaps I am only that forest where W. is wandering, he says, he's not sure.
