Jablonski revolutionizes Western thought via tangents and asides during the greatest road trip since Homer, unveiling the paradigm-shattering contributions of Petronius’ Shovel©, Petronius’ Blender©, Schadenfreude Before-the-Fact©, Quietude©, and Petronius’ Garage©. They take their rightful place in the pantheon above Occam’s dull Razor, Plato’s much-ballyhooed Cave, Arist ...more

Highly recommend this book. Books are almost always better than film/TV in every way IMO, but the one exception is humor. I tend to laugh more watching than reading. I can count on one hand the books that have had me consistently laughing out loud and this one is now occupying a finger. It stands out in that regard above all else and that's actually a high compliment.

The author writes in the first person and is initially a difficult person to get into. Anyone who blatantly tells you they are sm

I thought THE ANNALS a wonderful work, greatly enjoyable to read. It’s original, challenging and polished. I’m struck by Petronius’ voice which is absurdly precocious and compelling and I think he may be one of the most original, yet recognizable characters that I’ve come across in a while. I’m equally impressed by the way in which he reveals his situation in life gradually and carefully through the eyes and behavior of others – which takes some skill. It's a warmly comedic effect that’s enhance ...more

Preserving thoughts for the enjoyment and edification of strangers, renouncing revelry, friendship, and love for the unlikely esteem of men unknown, is this not madness incarnate, or the closest one can come to rule over day and night, divide them, and see that it is good?

“This is the cardinal virtue of an Objective narrative. Given its timeless nature, there is no need to assemble it with rackets and ruses. With the envy of eunuchs and ingenuity fanned by resentment, men incapable of profound insights deny the Objective nature of the written word in the despairing hope of dissuading those who know the Truth and have the courage to write it.

I, Petronius Jablonski, hereby forbid any and all Freudian, structural, post-structural, post-post-structural, post-colonial, post-anything analysis or deconstruction of my annals and condemn any and all such enterprises. All theorizing based on class, gender, and ethnicity is strictly prohibited.

An Objective narrative is not a Rorschach blot for one to project his pathologies and sundry whines. If the Reader insists on “reading into” the narrative, he should fill the margins with sketches of penises, vaginas, and stick-figures engaged in coitus.”
