"Good news. I am working on a 1400 page novel called “The Man Who Saw Life Clearly”. It will be post-modernist in style and is intended to be the first ironic treatment of irony. But that’s not all. It will be structured around Gödel’s incompleteness theorem, much as “Ulysses” is structured on “The Odyssey.” The problem of self-reference and the Turing machine will be developed novelistically for the first time."

— My father in an email to me from December of 1998! So far as I know, this novel remains unfinished. Happy belated father’s day, dad! (via mills)
