Dies ist das Cover des Buches Autobiography, erschienen im Bohmeier Verlag.



Many people can remember the 1920's, but it takes a remarkable skill to recreate those far-off days for readers who were born too late to experience them. Professor Spencer-Brown, whose classic works Laws of Form and Only Two can play This Game were both best-selling Bantam paperbacks, is perhaps the only writer who can bring to life the secret loves, fantasies, and frustrations of a two-year-old who recalls 1925 as if it were only yesterday.

Praise for this Book
I find it remarkable for the author's description of the sadistic relations with his mother. I think the premise is good, the title attractive and the length excellent. I am taken by the song, especially in its German translation. It almost sounds better in a foreign language, and appropriate for that language to be the language of Nietzsche and Brecht.
The best part of the book, however, seemed to be - and quite properly - the last chapter. The story of the demise of the family fortunes is dramatic and essential. The author's climactic account of not murdering his mother is equally so; and the subsequent detailing of his love for her and for his father adds a necessary note of catharsis. I was very impressed by all of this. There is something Jacobean about it.

I have never seen anything so funny. The observations of a two-year-old on the adults in his life are devastating.
