Absolute Escape Procedure

Thought I’d share the fruits of this morning’s collecting and collating: twelve superb essays about society and civilisation from the utterliest of outside perspectives. From Oscar Wilde‘s weird spiritual socialism to the rare modern satiricon of ‘The Papalagi’ via some classic meditations on work, play, the body and (my own contribution — also to be found on this site) history. I’ve put together a pdf, mobi and epub version which you can download here. Except, awfully sorry, you can’t anymore because I’m updating it ready for the avalanche of material mentioned above.
