Teaser Tuesdays: Death Comes for the Deconstructionist by Daniel Taylor

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.


There is a lot to recommend this funny little book, a novel about mental illness, academia and philosophy, with a murder mystery thrown in. For example, you know I couldn’t resist this:

So much information in one library, mountain ranges of information, Mariana Trenches of it. Earthly metaphors are insufficient; one has to go galactic to find adequate imagery for the near infinitude of what there is to know – even in this single word palace – and the heartbreaking finitude of my one little brain.

I like a good celebration of libraries, of course, and the imagery used here. Stick around…

This quotation comes from an uncorrected advance proof and is subject to change.
