They place his given-name (“Todd”) on pages 25 through 58. Then they place his middle names (“Earl”) on p.322 and (“Winkels”) on pages 356 through 411. Then they place his Catholic confirmation name (“Augustine”) on p.455…


The word ‘autobiography’ was first used deprecatingly by William Taylor in 1797 in the English periodical the Monthly Review, when he suggested the word as a hybrid but condemned it as ‘pedantic’; but its next recorded use was in its present sense by Robert Southey in 1809. The form of autobiography however goes back to antiquity. Biographers generally rely on a wide variety of documents and viewpoints; an autobiography, however, may be based entirely on the writer’s memory. 
Autobiographical works are by nature subjective. The inability — or unwillingness — of the author to accurately recall memories has in certain cases resulted in misleading or incorrect information. Some sociologists and psychologists have noted that autobiography offers the author the ability to recreate history.

One 258, 226 word sentence passes through three novels. A trilogy (from Greek τρι- tri-, “three” and -λογία -logia, “discourse”) is a set of three works of art that are connected, and that can be seen either as a single work or as three individual works. They are commonly found in literature, film, or video games. Three-part works that are considered components of a larger work also exist, such as the triptych or the three-movement sonata, but they are not commonly referred to with the term “trilogy.”

Van Buskirk was attracted to the ‘three novel’ book format through Samuel Beckett’s The Trilogy, consisting of three novels, Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable. Taken together, these three novels represent the high-water mark of the literary movement we call Modernism. Within their linguistic terrain, where stories are taken up, broken off, and taken up again, where voices rise and crumble and are resurrected, we can discern the essential lineaments of our modern condition, and encounter an awesome vision, tragic yet always compelling and always mysteriously invigorating, of consciousness trapped and struggling inside the boundaries of nature.

A single sentence question is placed five lines below…(a novel)

A single sentence question is placed five lines below the last sentence of “Fragment of a Novel” on p.114

Is the title a proposal that two texts are differentiated by space? One clue is the fact that there is no attribution of author for either the last sentence of “Fragment for a Novel” or the single sentence question. The title of the novel explains the reason for the existence of the novel, but upon looking (inside the book) at p.114 other curiosities emerge. Text is also seen on p.111, 112, and 113. The font used for the text used in the last line of “Fragment of a Novel” is a different size than the text used for the single sentence question.

The title “Fragment of a Novel” appears in the title on the cover, referencing the last line of “Fragment of a Novel” on p.114. Because the font size of “Fragment of a Novel” is the same size as the text which begins on p.111, it can be concluded that the text from pages 111-114 is also a part of “Fragment of a Novel.” The fact that the question text is set with a larger font confirms this idea. It’s also not clear why the question is placed FIVE lines under the last line of “Fragment of a Novel.” If the question itself is not part of the text of “Fragment of a Novel” it makes sense it would be separated by five lines.

A review of my novel Evangel United Methodist Church

stray1 commented on your document,

“Evangel United Methodist Church: A Novel.”

The most monumental waste of time I think I have ever experienced, and I only read it for two minutes. Or, to echo the vernacular of the ‘novel’, “Time it was the bird flew. No more the water shall import books from France. Our forefathers went under the skin as an epidural process, thereby limiting the financial strain. More sugar.” See, anyone can write gibberish!
