The Wonderful work of Fritz, or someone March 27 2010
By Reader and Writer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you think Existentialism is something better left to the 20th Century, take a lesson from Basara by reading The Chinese Letter. He'll quickly teach you the joys of prowling Zeitgeist ridden hallways of the mind where the dust of imagination coats all reality. Our narrator calls himself Fritz and speculates his name could be something else. If it's the self pondering notions of the self then how does the self know the conception is correct? So it is with his reality, events happen or he imagines they happen. He's forced to write and this in part is the result of his effort. It's a wonderful read, and it has probably one of my all time favorite lines of any novel. Like a Chinese box, the work is both beautiful and puzzling. You'll see.
