The Existential Pig
Essays, Portraits, And Vignettes
The Existential Pig consists of sixty-one short essays on Freud’s fees, Shelley’s cremation, absinthe, Ronda Spain, boredom, the end of the universe, a Degas painting, projectionists, Homer’s ships, old age, and much more. It is an original, quirky, erudite stroll through literature, people, animals, places, philosophy, and art. In an indirect way, without using the word I or me, Levy reveals his innermost landscape of joy and sorrow, intoxication and mortality.
