Sinopsis:

A fusion of literature, philosophy, memoir, and autobiography, spanning over half a century. In three volumes. If there is a hallmark of this work, it is that it is presented to the reader as one indivisible unit, in which all parts are internally related to all other parts. It is probably as unaspectual and unfragmented a work as has ever been written. In keeping with this spirit, there is no “Table of Contents.” Each of thirty-three sections is simply preceded by a Roman numeral and nothing more. (However, the titles of the Prefaces remain and are the only titled units in the work.) Owing to the length of time (approximately thirty-two years) it took for its execution, the work includes within itself time’s passage. Thus, in addition to its being partly a literary effort, partly a philosophical excursion, partly a memoir, partly a travelogue, and partly an autobiography, it is also a kind of diary.

Although a "Table of Contents” would compartmentalize and compromise the integrity of the work, an "Outline" is here included to give the prospective reader some idea of its structure and scope:
