About the Author
Walker Percy wrote several books, many of them bestsellers, and is considered one of the greatest American writers of our time. He died in 1990.
"A mock self-help book designed not to help but to provoke; a chapbook to inveigle us into thinking about who we are and how we got into this mess." --Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Original and imaginative, it conveys a serious, occasionally somber message in a vein of high comedy. I love this book. It is not to be read once through, but to be reread, savored, and pondered." --Edmund Fuller, The Wall Street Journal
"This is a stunningly innovative collection, for readers who like both to chuckle and to think hard." --People
