have i never been completely awake? Oct 12, 2007
This book is great. Literature? I don't really think so. It's not a blog either by any means, but it IS a story. I have been eyeing this book at museum gift shops for ages now, and I finally bought it, and it REALLY is difficult to put down after you get started. Things you've thought half conciously, or conciously, and then discarded in a moment, they put in print and make you seriously consider the question.
Is hunger an emotion? Is there a secret tunnel that leads directly to the kitchen?
Is it art or literature? Feb 6, 2004
This is a very quirky little publication; it is hard to say if it is art of literature, possibly it is both, as there is a visually artistic core to it. It is certainly not to be read cover to cover but is interesting to dip into to find a thought-provoking or simply amusing question at random. It is full of such, and sometimes the writing is crossed out or inserted for interesting artistic statement. The book is beautifully and starkly presented, with two questions per page in scrawled white writing on black, shiny paper. It is a very interesting piece of art for the coffee table, though perhaps not an endlessly readable and entertaining book. Worth having, though perhaps the price isnt justified.
