From the Preface: Reflections of a Jaundiced Eye in Winter Bloom is a collection of fleeting thoughts randomly written over a lifetime. Often, they were recorded on scraps of paper for later scrutiny. Sometimes, they were incorporated in travel diaries prompted by experiences of the time; occasionally, they were nascent musings awaiting later revisits. The compilation can be read leisurely and selectively since continuity is not requisite. The work is aimed at readers who enjoy browsing through witticisms, quips, aphorisms, and axioms. It is assumed that readers may not share the author's views-or even appreciate some of the attempts at sardonic humor-but agreement is not in order. What is important is the willingness to screen another person's vision of this thing we call 'life'. The Tragedy of Adam and Eve is a one-act play. It is an imaginary domestic drama about the apocryphal first family.
