Poetry/Fiction. AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN WORDS, while deeply influenced, both structurally and emotionally, by writers like Nietzsche, Cioran, and Wittgenstein, shifts the terrain of philosophical inquiry from purity and high culture to the impersonal subjective and a sort of shattered self-reference. The author describes it as pseudo-aphoristic paragraphs and confessional poetry which confesses nothing: But I'd want to watch. Attend my own funeral. After arranging the music and the order of speakers, I would go last. This limited edition also includes drawings by New York artist Mette Madsen. Susan Noel lives in New York and Pittsburgh.
