Annotation

Drawing on a truly immense store of knowledge encompassing literature, philosophy, theology, and history, William Ian Miller excavates the evidence of human anxieties aroundscarcity in all its forms (from scarcity of food to luck to where we stand in the eyes of others caught in a game of musical chairs we often do not even know we are playing).

Full Description

In this book, William Ian Miller offers his reflections on the perverse consequences of so-called 'good things.' With wit and sensitivity, along with a large measure of fearless self-scrutiny, he points to and invites us to recognize the gloomy, neurotic, despondent tendencies of reasonably sentient humanity.
