Hysteresis
 

An Asymmetric Account of an Individual Apocalypse

Authored by David J Keffer

If St. John the Apostle had been a twenty-something twentieth-century post-existentialist, his book of revelations would have described a much different apocalypse, one tailored to fit a more independent and inward-focused generation. "Hysteresis", the description of a path in which the distinctions between coming and going govern the outcome of the journey, provides just such an alternate revelation.

In the interests of full disclosure, the author has provided a second subtitle as well, which is relayed here, cryptic and self-deprecating though it may be: Tragicomedic Juvenilia of a Melodramatic Amanuensis.
