Summary

Everything we know must end.  In the fundamentals of our lives its usually our own deaths which bring that to an end.  But what if we widen that premise.  What if we are caught in its quixotic jaws. Held fast with escape merely a fleeting thought. 
In this volume authors of real note bring their narratives of existential crisis and threat directly to our senses.  That conflict can yield terrible results. 
And for that place the blame on Franz Kafka, Boleslaw Prus, Herman Melville, Oscar Wilde and many others.
