At the same time, the book elaborates a limited philosophy.

From unusual writings and rare human experiences, James Brusseau forges compelling understandings that scrupulously preserve his subjects irregularities. The resulting philosophic narrative remains strictly localized- it elucidates narrow bands of experience and refuses broadening generalizations.The books first section rigorously elaborates Deleuzes pioneering notion of difference. The second part conceives certain individuals as embodying difference and then employs the conception to elude difficulties blocking recent work on subjectivity.

Part three combines insights from the first two parts with Isabelle Eberhardts North African travel journals. In Eberhardt, Brusseau finds sexualities and a solitude that only Deleuzes unique notion of difference can explain.An energetic interaction between philosophy and literature drives this book. Brusseau weaves back and forth between the genres, engaging diverse literatures not only to embody but also to refine his philosophic positions. The literary authors he discusses range from Shakespeare and Fitzgerald to Borges, Bataille, and Eberhardt.
