Abstract:

""The Vanilla Kid was the only name any of us knew for him; and at that time, the only name Kid knew for himself. He was one of the street people; those who had disappeared from another life and would disapper from this one too." - So begins the story. Who he was before, and who he was after - and how he sorted it (them!) all out - is a witty and bizarre tale built on mind games pitting Identity versus Deception. The Vanilla Kid is a labyrinth of wry twists and turns, a series of illusions which will challenge the reader to new insights - all leading toward that enigma called Self. But even these supposedly lofty thoughts are offered up with an ever present sense for the absurd"--Back cover.
