I want this book to be the simplest, clearest, frankest work I have the power to make it, that I may encourage you to function imaginatively, that you may open your "Immortal Eyes inwards into the Worlds of Thought" [William Blake], where you behold every desire of your heart as ripe grain "white already to harvest" [John 4:35].

Mark Twain once said, "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything." It sort of works the other way around, too -- if you don't remember anything, you have to tell the truth. "One of my weird quirks is that I never lie about things," Ashley says. "It takes too much effort to remember lies compared to what actually happened." Being Ashley's friend is a mixed bag -- he might never remember your name, but you always know he's not making up some bullshit excuse so he doesn't have to help you move.
