Original Self
Living With Paradox and Originality
By Thomas Moore
50 mini-essays on living with originality rather than con-
formity. Each chapter starts with a concept - e.g. "Live sim-
ply, but be complicated," "Gender is infinitely more subtle
than biological difference and is never static," "Imagination
is more weighty than fact," etc. - which is then developed over
the course of a shortish essay in the style of a meditation,
always elegantly fashioned, and often holding strikingly unorthodox views.
A book to savour slowly that would make a beautiful gift.
