(From the publisher):
'This Book May or May Not Exist!
Perhaps it exists only in the world created by Colin Collins. Perhaps you live in that world. And if you live in that world and the book does exist, you may find the answer for your life.
'Wyman Guin Does Exist! The author of the celebrated stories collected in Living Way Out has produced in The Standing Joy a work of major importance. Using the arts and sciences of philosophy, anthropology, mathematics, and fantasy, he has wrought a novel utterly different, comparable to no other.
'Colin Collins only looks like a boy. His mind, however, could only be matched by the greatest thinkers in history. Using strange forces, he is creating an entirely new world from the scarred landscape of the American depression.'
