This single volume contains four books whose pages are entwined: 1) LIFEWORKS, which is the latest version of the author's famously humongous professional resume; 2) DEDICATIONS, collecting and identifying the subjects to whom the authors' works are dedicated; 3.) EIN DUMBKOPFBUCH, previously on line, in which the author reprints particularly ridiculously rejection letters that his work has received from a rich variety of literary gatekeepers; 4)NEGATIVE NOTICES, which reprints choice excerpts from negative printed reviews. Which books are comedies, which tragedies? Needless to say perhaps, this four-part essay in autobiography is radically different from any volume published before.
