The Purpose Of A Man

by Daniel Brevitt

Sometimes having a seat on the Court of Reviewers means you get set up on blind dates -with books.  Some are DOA due to differences in personality and clashes of taste, while others are surprisingly well suited.  The Purpose of a Man by Daniel Brevitt slipped neatly into the latter group.
