Written between ages 20 and 25, these essays represent the best of Westbrook’s early non-fiction writings. Treating primarily on issues of creativity and theology, they are a testament to... More > Westbrook’s passion for God and art. Passion, often, in the Latin sense which, as Westbrook points out, is best translated as “suffering”.

These are raw writings from a young artist who is less interested in convincing you he’s right and more concerned with figuring out what he actually thinks. A fascinating read for any Westbrook fan.< Less
