Part art criticism part biography part memoir part sadomasochism philosophy or Ds as Kraus often abbreviates itThis is a real tour de force exploration of Kraus' philosophy and life lived I learned so much from her About the art of Paul Thek about philosophy and life of Simone Weir about Kraus' film Gravity Grace and about her epistolary Ds romance with Africa For that I say thank you Chris This was greatThe thread that ties these parts together is a specific kind of failure; a rebuke or rejection from the peers from which validation is sought It explores what it means to create something of meaning and then digs into the superficial reasons that meaning can be so easily overlooked even spurned or just forgotten It seems Kraus tries to define empathy or so missed opportunities for it that comes across especially in the Africa Ds epistolaryAnd this is fiction though not non fiction and not memoir It's not for everybody I'd say avoid if you need coherent plot in your novels But if your thing is just smart insightful philosophical playful writing
