Divided Mind

In August, I wrote a profile of George Scialabba on the occasion of the appearance of the first collection of his essays, a volume called Divided Mind. Unfortunately it was not so easy for many readers actually to find a copy of the book, which came out in a small edition. But a couple of days ago it was listed by Mark Oppenheimer as one of the great titles of 2006 overlooked by the Pulitzer Prize committee.

Now the book is available in PDF at George's website, which is good news. I must issue a warning however. Brace yourself before clicking the link I am about to give -- for while the artwork on the cover is certainly very striking, it is likely to induce nightmares, or at least the heebejeebees. Okay, then, you have been warned: here it is.

I think it's an art installation of some kind.

From some museum located deep within the scarier parts of the human brain.
