Title

Leftovers

Abstract

Leftovers, a collection of nine essays, is an attempt to understand the world holistically. The methodologies of each essay vary widely: different essays emphasize reported personal experience, academic sources, popular culture sources, remembered conversations with friends, and often literary allusions. Through the inclusion of disparate topics, the collection aims for a more comprehensive view of the world through the eyes of one particular man. The essays are not about a single person but they are ultimately so intertwined with his consciousness that he becomes a character. The essays continually evolve on the page so that the planned journey is rarely the road taken; it is this transformation essay that brings vitality to these pages.
