A fictionalised autobiography, told in 30 sections, each of which begins with the memory of a book that has left an image on the writer's mind. The images themselves, with their scenes of marital discord, violence and madness, or their illuminated landscapes that point to the consolations of a world beyond fiction, give new intensity to Murnane's habitual concern with the anxieties and aspirations of the writing life, in the absence of religious belief.
