''This book is the fruit of my desire to perform simultaneously two feats impossible to perform simultaneously ... to write the next Commedia, and to bring forth a volume whose every page would remain pure of the word 'God.' Needless to say, the more I tried to exclude this latter from my concerns, the more I was haunted by Him.'' -Christopher Spranger

About Christopher Spranger

Christopher Spranger, the acclaimed author of The Effort to Fall (Green Integer, 1998), writes: I was born March 29th, 1971, in Chicago, Illinois, and have been conspicuous ever since for my total failure to be a functioning part of the human species. I have not so much moved through life as slipped by alongside of it, like a fugitive. To ignore every goal reverenced by man: such has been my modus vivendi. I have no affiliations, no profession; there are no titles attached to my name; and I would even go so far as to say, at the risk of sounding excessive, that I am too unsynchronized with the material realm to have a terrestrial career. Who knows if at some time in the future my fleeting appearance upon the stage of this world might not be found classified among the forms of mirage?
