Summary
"When he learned he had ALS and roughly two years to live, literary critic Mark Krupnick returned to the writers who had been his lifelong conversation partners and asked with renewed intensity: how do you live as a Jew when, mostly, you live in your head? The evocative and sinuous essays collected here are the products of this inquiry. In his search for durable intellectual principles, Krupnick examines the New York intellectuals and other writers who guided him in creating a self through reading and writing."--Jacket
