2.0 out of 5 stars An acquired taste, perhaps, 13 May 2009
This review is from: Palimpsest (Paperback)
'Palimpsest' has the fervid texture of a drugged dream. Dreams can stir powerful emotions whilst you are caught in their grip, immersed in their almost-logic, almost-sense...

Contrast that then, with how you reflect upon your dreams (or other altered-state episodes) when you awaken, and the rest of your mind comes into play. I myself wonder at how such trivial, banal or just plain nonsensical events, experiences could have seemed so freighted with meaning, how that altered state caused you to assign such weight of significance to so little substance, to make so many connections on no real evidence and how waking life with its mundanities and effort is so much the richer, complex and rewarding.

Like dreams, I find this book unsatisfying, and for much the same reasons. You may find quite the reverse...but how do you then find your life?
