    Collections of Nothing eBook ¶ Collections of µ PDF chorvatsko.pro collections epub, nothing ebok, Collections of free, Collections of Nothing PDFOh god you don't know how it pains me to give this book two stars The cover is beautiful and the subject matter fascinating I know that William Davies King is a kindred spirit a fellow collector obsessive but that doesn't change the fact that I feel after finishing this book like someone just threw up on me If you want to write a book about your weird habits so that I can admire and respect them please do If you want to write a book and talk circularly and melodramatically about how your parents didn't love you enough and how you collect objects because they will never leave you please DON'T You can even call me and talk to me about it on the phone if you want But if you're going

    Collections of Nothing eBook ¶ Collections of µ PDF chorvatsko.pro collections epub, nothing ebok, Collections of free, Collections of Nothing PDFIn some ways this memoir strikes me as the most naked kind of confessional as if the author instead of being a collector were a professional masturbator or someone who wove carpets from the hair of all the women he dated It is a memoir steeped in shame and pathology yet also normalness since the type of collecting and acuiring done here is both an attempt to fil

    Collections of Nothing eBook ¶ Collections of µ PDF chorvatsko.pro collections epub, nothing ebok, Collections of free, Collections of Nothing PDFEither this book is really pretentious or I am not its intended audience Or I suppose bothThe author spends a lot of the book circling back to analytical thoughts about his collecting habit I can tell you what it boils down to objects have no inherent value above what we assign to them Also if what you are is lonely then you need people not objects There now you don't have to read the whole bookIt's puzzling to me because obviously this author can write There is a really excellent sestina in here and a paragraph riffing on the word putter in such a subtle way that I didn't figure out until the end of the paragraph what he was doing There are puns and riffing There is some simple concrete discussion of the author's life that was easy to read what he wore what people said what the landscape was like etcBut always ther

    Collections of Nothing eBook ¶ Collections of µ PDF chorvatsko.pro collections epub, nothing ebok, Collections of free, Collections of Nothing PDFSome parts are wonderfully written some parts are too much My general sense of Dave King is that he is a genius but that I would hate him I like the idea paying attention and finding value in mundane things such as security envelopes see cover which isn't exactly what he is saying but that's what I am taking to my life His treatment of personal relationships and horrible cruelty about his sister were very offputting which is why I didn't give 5 stars I bet that a lot of people will find it too precious but I think he does precious well
