Overview
Born of a terrible insomnia which E. M. Cioran called 'a dizzying lucidity which would turn even paradise into hell, ' this book presents the young philosopher, a self-described 'Nietzsche still complete with his Zarathustra, his poses, his mystical clown's tricks, a whole circus of the heights. An exorcism of despair, this book offers insights into the ironic anguish of Cioran's philosophic mind while providing fascinating information on his early development as a writer and thinker.
