New York: Overlook Press, 2003. From the introduction, "Daumal is conducting his readers on a tour through the labyrinth of the mind's convolutions. Using thirst as a metaphor, he reveals normal life to be a state of endless intoxication. He conveys us through a topsy-turvy, comic inspection Dante's realm of Hell, a voyage into the center of the self. It is a book about the psychology of consciousness that dumps the reader right into the maelstrom." Paperback in very good condition. Item #15126
