A paradoxical, irreligious confrontation with the (almost) “unbearable lightness of being” is John Veen's description of his approach. This original collection of “epigrams and subversions” seems to come direct from a spring of truth, without a taint of what John calls “stolen goods” or borrowed truths. John's light and humorous touch hides a fierce directness which leaves no ground for us to stand. Read this as poetry and wisdom and you won't be disappointed. Read it and really get it—then “you” will be blown away.
