tsuomela : diary   7

Ongoingness | Graywolf Press
"A dazzling philosophical investigation of the challenge of living in the present, by a brilliant practitioner of the new essay In her third book that continues to define the contours of the contemporary essay, Sarah Manguso confronts a meticulous diary that she has kept for twenty-five years. “I wanted to end each day with a record of everything that had ever happened,” she explains. But this simple statement belies a terror that she might forget something, that she might miss something important. Maintaining that diary, now 800,000 words, had become, until recently, a kind of spiritual practice."
