Frémon creates a world of what often seems like random bits of knowledge, but is, in fact, an interconnecting skein of ideas—philosophical, scientific, religious, and literary—that questions and searches out the meaning of everyday life . . . With wit, humor, and a profound sense of intellectual curiosity, Frémon explores just these issues.
