Searching for Cioran - Ilinca Zarifopol-Johnston, Kenneth R. Johnston, Matei Călinescu A sad, haunting, melancholic book - a meditation on the totalitarian impulse of the lyrical. Some fabulous material in Part I. Part II (the author's personal diary) can be skipped. Even part I is a stump, as illness and death prevented its completion. But the final pages, completed by the author's husband, are themselves stunning.
