"Jenny is the future of nonfiction in America. What an absurdly arrogant statement to make. I make it anyway. Watch."-John D'Agata

"Yes, Aristotle, there can be pleasure without complete and unified action with a beginning, middle, and end.' Jenny Boully has done it."-Mary Jo Bang

A book with only beginnings and endings, all invented. Jenny Boully opens and closes more than fifty topics ranging from physics and astronomy to literary theory and love. A brilliant statement on interruption, impermanence, and imperfection.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Beginnings and Endings?

Voila!  Nov 22, 2007
Erudite without trying to be erudite, which is difficult; however, in The Book of Beginnings and Endings, not only does Jenny Boully enlighten but also enriches. With her command of poesy, cadence, and language she invites the reader to acknowledge and coo simultaneously. Gentle in her delivery of sacred and austere subject matter she addresses all things earthly and divine in an ethereal manner in which the audience can easily grasp, hold on to, and pass along. Despite the unorthodox format in which Ms. Boully delivers her soul on paper, The Book of Beginnings and Endings is an effortless experience for the reader.

Other books by Jenny Boully: The Body:An Essay, and
[one love affair]: A million wallowing anemones, a thousand eyes peeping through, a thousand spies shivering, unnamable endless flowerings, countless empty ... one drowning, one nightclub called Juicy.
