author. known for idiosyncratic style and humorous "outside the box" formats of writing, often interjecting diagrams and extended portions of dialogue into his works. books have a clear focus, IMO, on transcending the chaos of life. frequently demonstrates his lack of organization or attention to cleanliness or his surroundings in his autobiography, while lamenting his position of having to take care of his 8-or-so year old brother. some of his later works have a leftist political human-rights abuse theme.
i have to read a heartbreaking work of staggering genius for english class. frankly, i think it sucks (although the format is amusing), but there you have it.
