This is another volume in a series of works about the human condition by Dr. Kevin Boileau. It is phenomenological in the tradition of Hemingway and Kafka, simultaneously tragic and joyous. It is moral in tone and psychoanalytic in structure, presenting the story of a character both distraught and resolved, sedimented and transcendent. It is best read along with its companion volume, The Return, which presents a gestalt inversion of our normal, conventional lifeworlds. Both are replete with phenomenological-ontological descriptions of dying and transformation.
