The Book of Finch tells the true and rather remarkable story of a man who feels he is seeing moments of his life portrayed in modern popular media, most notably in the motion picture “The Number 23”.
Though the book might seem to be about a guy who’s made for Hollywood, the story takes a rather religious turn as Finch discovers a secret of the Universe – that miracles are reality, but Finch must struggle with a far from perfect church and the local mental health department.
This is the story of a most horrifying metamorphosis that can best be regarded as either truly magical or truly insane – it is highly evident that Finch characterizes at least one of those two characteristics. It seems obvious to many that Finch was crazy, but that which lurks in his past may have been indicative of the future.
What do those numbers mean, eh?
This book includes a series of 24 poems written during the latter portion of the story.
