one of the most romantic conceptions of artistic redemption for political failure: it is said that politics is the art of the possible, here is the art of art as impossible. you cannot turn back time. you cannot second chance or do over. the world is now, as it was then, far more complicated in motivation and act than we might suppose. the only response is to find value in the arts, even if it is another’s voice you speak, the only response is art.
Lots of theatre jargon - you may not like it if you've never acted. A unique story line, kept me turning pages. Lots of stream of conciousness.

Meticulous, sad and humorous but borderline pretentious at times. Worth a read.
