Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2020.319 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a gripping image: this man working on his book across all the ages, fending off this spirit that wants to set them both free by destroying it.

Con: There’s probably a symbolic meaning here, but I’m not seeing it. Not unless it’s a metaphor for authors who can’t ever finish their books.
