Three interrelated essays on the primary colors presents the artistic, aesthetic, emotional, and economic dimensions of each color in an anecdotal format of poetry and humor.
In novels like Darconville's Cat and An Adultery, Alexander Theroux has staked a claim as one of American writing's most brilliant voices. His three interrelated essays--comprehensively examining three primary colors--comprise a rich and billowing tour de force, a virtuoso performance of the liberal education.

Tight binding. Clean, sound, copy in very good+ condition. Brilliant collection of three essays, linked by theme.
