EBarnacle1 BS: How do you flirt with an Existentialist? (95* d) RE: BS: How do you flirt with an Existentialist? 20 Oct 03


If you are saying that writing the book is an end in itself, so be it. If it is meant as a book to be read, you have to take risks. the house may fall on you, you may be rejected.

When Mark and I were working on "Songs of South Street," the publications committee that had asked us to write the book got into issues of political correctness and dithering. We went to a few publishers who turned us down on the theory that the book was too small.

We then decided to self publish because we had something to say to the public. If you want to be heard, you have to get the word out to your public. Otherwise, the book is simply an exercise in composition, worthy in its own way but a private document.
