Writers and other artists seldom lay bare the nuts and bolts of their thinking, but French novelist Michel Tournier does precisely that in his book of 58 brief essays, The Mirror of Ideas
.... Tournier's writing is more lightly burdened than the philosophers'. Because he prefers to illustrate thought with image, he often takes an unexpectedly humorous turn. -- The San Francisco Chronicle, Kenneth Baker
