The Object-Lesson

The Object-Lesson Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by Samuel Foote's poem, "The Grand Panjandrum," The Object-Lesson presents a stunning series of seemingly random and unrelated events.

With its humorous obscurity and puzzling intrigues, The Object-Lesson delights and provokes.
