"Despair is a sickness in the spirit, in the self, and so it may assume a triple form: in despair at not being conscious of having a self (despair improperly so called); in despair at not willing to be oneself; in despair at willing to be oneself" --Kierkegaard, p. 146
"Yeah. That and making a bjillion dollars as the funniest dude in Hollywood." --Bill Crawford, p. 158
This was a custom job for an Andover friend, Bill Crawford, who had written for pay a monograph/throwaway on Adam Sandler, and as soon as I saw it I knew it needed Kierkegaard.
He had sent me two copies of the book, and the duo suggested the Soren K. duo that seemed on every shelf at one point—a rarely read must-read for the dour scintellectual.
So it's in two volumes, and half of the Kierkegaard went into each, half a page per page.
So you need both volumes to read AS: America's Comedian and Fear and Trembling
Or Adam Sandler: AC and Sickness unto Death.
That is, if you have existence enough.
Mostly it's words, because life is difficult, but there are some pictures, too.
And a box to contain it.
