On Finding

An essay book about finding your way forward, and the benefits of getting lost.

This book is about finding things. Really it is more of a beginning, a collection of questions for anyone seeking to move ahead with new approaches, problems, and solutions. It’s about the challenge Google promised to help us with, this basic human problem we were told would be solved once and for all. Three chapters of this book are essentially about the internet, and three are essentially about other things. The book does not provide any definitive answers. It tries to find a way forward, but it is far more interested in getting lost. Featuring: A lieutenant commander, a mapmaker, a musician, and Konstantina, the doctor who got suspicious— and found a ruthless sloth inside the author’s body.
