Thoughts over thoughts over thoughts for seven chapters

I found this story deeply thought provoking. How does a smart man’s life grow and then wonder into and end filled with emptiness and pain. John B was slowly poisoned by his own wonderful talents and this squeezed his glorious mind into disorder. Happy endings are often just in Hollywood for sure.
