Misanthrope! Autobiographical Notes By Frank Robert Vivelo
Paperback: $20.70
Prints in 3-5 business days
This may be the oddest book of its kind that you’ll ever read. It’s a memoir of a sort, an autobiography, in much the same way that crumbs dropped on the forest floor are a pathway to the... More > old hag’s hut where Hansel and Gretel are held. If you collect the crumbs as you walk, you’ll have a sum greater than its parts at the end of your trek—a surprisingly coherent account of a unique personality, an incorrigible individualist, fiercely independent, defiant of tradition, who is sometimes profound and insightful and sometimes trite and narrow-minded, highly original but not necessarily admirable.

More > identified as psychic tranquility or untroubledness—and attempts to pursue that goal in the most practical, efficacious manner possible. Accordingly, it emphasizes investing this pursuit in the only things we each control, our thoughts and feelings, and minimizing desire for and reliance on all things external to us and therefore not under our control, such as wealth and fame. It insists that individuals choose, and therefore are responsible for, all they think and feel.
