Sometimes humorous and sometimes deadly serious, 99 Deceptions delivers a clear view—99 or so times—of our propensity to lie to ourselves, and others. Drafted as a series of short vignettes, this work promises hours of entertainment and serious contemplation.
Dr. Kevin Boileau has been writing about the human condition for several years. All of his several theoretical and literary publications pursue an understanding of the vagaries, struggles, and foibles of the Western self and its multitude of narrative structures. This short work—with many vignettes—expands his range of genres by addressing deep psychological insights with humor and a trenchant literary style. Boileau is a philosopher and social critic, interested in our political condition and, as such, brings to bear the methodologies of psychoanalysis and phenomenology to his work. He writes in the style of French minimalism and is considered a radical existentialist though he might eschew the term. He is the author of several books and articles, a regular speaker at local colloquia, and a professor of psychoanalytic theory, phenomenology, and philosophy.
