Along the way, he shows how each of these qvoyages out from himselfq has led him to the source of his beginnings as a writer. The Disappointment Artist is a series of windows onto the collisions of art, landscape, and personal history that formed Lethemas richly imaginative, searingly honest perspective on life. A touching, deeply perceptive portrait of a writer in the making.
