Beyond the climactic journey chronicled in Apples of Arcadia, Woolf illustrates with razor-keen aplomb a voyeuristic portrait of the authors life and the (at times, ambivalent) business of literary publishing.Alternating between points of view, psychosocial landscapes, various locations (including a feast of fortune cookies in a Chinese restaurant) and across time zones, Woolf explores with new, inventive language the timeless themes of obsessive love, heartbreak, spiritual loss and eventual redemption — all while searching for the perfect literary agent.Writing is like digging in the dirt, no? There are creepy things and filthy earthy things one finds that affirm experience, which is the crux... to keep digging! What does it matter? Simply, it matters all. - Jeffrey Woolf
