This review is from: The Interrogative Mood (Hardcover)
This strangely intriguing book The Interrogative Mood is the author's journey through somewhere using questions only. Some of the questions are simple and some descriptive of the author's own knowledge and understandings. One feels compelled to keep reading and yet to go too fast means not spending time reflecting on your own answers to these soul-searching questions. It's definitely a book you can read more than once - though perhaps the second time would be more dipping in and out.
As an educator, the thought has crossed my mind that it would be a good exercise for my students to fill several sides with questions that come to their minds because if reading it has an effect on the reader then surely writing such a text will have a profound effect on the writer. The questions are personal because it is the writer who has come up with them and so, this time, I was not put off by the constant references to the references the author makes to things that only people from his background might know about.In the end I decided that everyone should write such a book. Why? Because in the end I believe it gives the writer as well as the reader a different insight into themselves than other forms of writing.

so are you saying that rather than make statements when we write (or talk) we should pose questions instead?
