A fictionalised biography formed of seven volumes and written between 1871 and 1922. The narrator recalls childhood with wonder. He worries, as he ages and experiences humanity’s folly, that time is always being lost and the world has no meaning. He realises, at the end, that memory lets him re-access all that was lost. Writing also does this, so he writes the book you’ve been reading.
