The return of a mental disability that takes the form of oppression by demons,
A long-ago scandal at the university continue to plague him
Life without steady, loving companionship on the margins of a a large city weighs on him.
Despite all this, he doesn't give up on life or work.He develops his creativity.He strives to build up the arts in the local community. He takes pleasure in helping people who come his way. He reads constantly and loves story writing. He has written two dozen sketches about aspects of university life that are included in the novel.
