The book describes my obsessive questioning of my identity and my compulsive search for an answer: driving across the world in a double-decker bus; watching Jake Gyllenhaal’s face melt into a chubby vagina; sitting in the mansion of Lonely Planet’s founders and imagining them bumming across the patio… Eventually, after stepping back from the iron railings of a snow-swept balcony in east London, I find joy in the insurmountable truth that when it comes to who we are, there are no neat conclusions.
At its core, Pure is about uncertainty and insecurity, and how trying to banish these things in the pursuit of happiness will paradoxically make us unhappy. It’s about finding beauty in greyness, and embracing the unfathomable weirdness of the human mind.
We think authors and readers should decide which books get published. On the Unbound site, authors pitch their ideas directly to you. If you like what you read, you can pledge your support to help make the book happen. Everyone who supports an author before they reach 100% of the funding target gets their name printed in every edition of that book. All levels include a digital version and immediate access to the author's shed while they write the book, and supporters of projects that don't reach their target receive a full refund.
If you like the sound of that, then sign up and have a look around. We've got some great projects and we'd love you to help make them happen. We're @unbounders on Twitter by the way.
