More About the Author

I'm Nigel Tomm - I am an artist. My art is applied discipline involving the systematic, and often scientific, study of human/animal mental functions and behavior. Occasionally, in addition or opposition to employing the scientific method, my art also relies on symbolic interpretation and critical analysis, although it often does so less prominently than social sciences such as sociology. I, Nigel Tomm, study such phenomena as perception, cognition, attention, emotion, motivation, personality, behavior and interpersonal relationships. Sometimes I also study the unconscious mind. I, Nigel Tomm, attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the underlying physiological and neurological processes. My art includes many sub-fields of study and applications concerned with such areas as human development, sports, health, industry, media and law. My art incorporates research from the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. My art is the study of general and fundamental problems concerning matters such as existence, knowledge, truth, beauty, law, justice, validity, mind, and language. If art is then the sum total of everything of which we are aware, my art is the reservoir of everything we can remember, all that is accessible to voluntary recall: the storehouse of memory. This leaves the not-my-art area of mental life to contain all the more primitive drives and impulses influencing our actions without our necessarily ever becoming fully aware of them, together with every important constellation of ideas or memories with a strong emotional charge, which have at one time been present in my art but have since been repressed so that they are no longer available to it, even through introspection or attempts at memory. My art is a logical system that attempts to deal with contradictions in a discriminating way. Alternatively, my art is the subfield of art that is concerned with studying and developing inconsistency-tolerant systems of art. The primary motivation for my art is the conviction that it ought to be possible to reason with inconsistent information in a controlled and discriminating way. My art is a major area of art concerned with spatial properties that are preserved under continuous deformations of objects, for example deformations that involve stretching, but no tearing or gluing.

Format: Paperback
How do you judge a book when the book itself is a long, expensive, unfunny joke? Easily. You acknowledge the fact that it is in fact a long, expensive, unfunny joke. It's obvious some trust-fund you-know-what wanted to be the guy who had the longest book in the world, with some bluntly put, flavorless attack on literary art that he could brag about to some you-know-what trust-fund friend or some airhead woman who wouldn't read the book if it had popup designs. Come to think of it, I wouldn't even dare say that this is a statement on quasi-intellectual garbage, or even so much as an attack on anything. It's an attack on the reader, maybe, but that's beside the point.

To say that The Blah Blah was anything above blah would be to complement it on unsound grounds. Nobody is saying anything to anyone. The author thinks he's clever but he isn't. The author wasted a lot of time. The author wasted a lot of other people's time. Most of all, the author wasted a lot of paper. My god, did he waste a lot of paper.

Luckily, this book does nothing but that. Wasting paper I mean. This book was forgotten the minute What's His Name published it. Then, it isn't even the longest "book" out there. Not a recognized record breaker either, folks, so A La Recherche du Temps Perdu is still the winner in that respect.

Another self-published crack at winning the title, Marienbad my Love, is a whopping six million words longer than this, and also isn't realized as a novel, and also has not the world record. This is because neither of these attempts are novels. Just words. Quoth Truman Copote's idea of On The Road: "It isn't literature - It's typing."

It's too bad, though, The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest was almost longer than this. And that had some effort put in, kind of.

I think.
