The core theme of disassociation of feeling and aesthetic effect is explored in this collection of essays through several contexts—family, faith, art history, and sanctuary. Twenty autobiographical sketches provide unorthodox insight and perspective into everyday life and its deeper nuance. It includes an intriguing examination of the history, meaning, and present uses of a red-brick church in Wellington, New Zealand. Quirky and unusual, this book sets a new standard for the personal essay.
