Summary
This collection of essays is an often lighthearted and sometimes narcissistic exploration of myself. The collection begins with a critical introduction outlining the aspects of the essay I find most compelling, such as the contemplative, meandering style; the demand for the author's honesty that fosters self-discovery; and the ability to make personal experiences common and everyday experiences meaningful. Six essays follow the introduction, arranged in a somewhat chronological order, and follow a thematic arc of identity formation. These are the process of becoming an individual, which involves questioning my own and others' perceptions of me, my thoughts and decisions, and my ability to express myself as I understand myself; and finally learning to accept my own understanding of myself. Other common themes throughout the essays include my education and learning experiences, traveling and experiencing life and langauges in other lands and cultures, and how my understanding of myself changes with time
