Requirements: .PDF reader, 4,4 MB
Overview: This book journeys from one far-flung topic to another to test the reader’s curiosity and powers of lateral thinking. Robert Pirsig wrote in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, "It’s the sides of the mountain which sustain life, not the top. Here’s where things grow." This also applies to the joy that writers experience when letting their minds drift and when wondering about humanity’s place in the universe. To this end, Sex, Drugs, Einstein, and Elves is a collection of personal essays on topics the author contemplated after a Mediterranean journey. Subjects include fugu sushi, zombie.
