Description (Arcade Publishing):
Cioran faces other great writers and thinkers whose ideas have shaped the world, drawing portraits of Beckett, Borges, Fitzgerald, and others.

In this collection of essays and epigrams, E.M. Cioran gives us portraits and evaluations--which he calls "admirations"--of Samuel Beckett, Jorge Luis Borges, F. Scott Fitzgerald, the poet Paul Valery, and Mircea Eliade, among others. In alternating sections of aphorisms--his "anathemas"--he delivers insights on such topics as solitude, flattery, vanity, friendship, insomnia, music, mortality, God, and the lure of disillusion.
