Annotation: The Absolute Is a Round Die is a work of metaphysical meditation, a verbal mural painting, a restless search for a way to speak the unspeakable, know the unknowable, attain the unattainable. It travels through Middle Eastern sensuality and mysticism, seeking the transcendence within what is at hand, discovering the invisible.
