At once a memoir, a reading journal, and a novel, Fragments of a Mortal Mind is a daring, contemporary commonplace book. Donald Anderson shows us how the disparate elements of our lives collect to construct our deepest selves and help us to make sense of it all. Anderson layers personal experiences and reflections with those of others who have wrestled with inner and outer social, cultural, and political memories that are not as accurate as history might suggest but that each of us believe nonetheless. This is a powerful masterpiece that closely resembles our lived experiences and is a vivid reflection of our time. Buy this book from our affiliate Bookshop.org.
