What I Take to Be Obvious

All prefaces to the books I have read have been afterwords, afterwards when I read them, they having been written after the fact of the book. Even an author’s introduction I never read before the book. I mean every author’s introduction could only have been written after the book was written. You cannot introduce a book that has yet to be written, no more than you could introduce no one standing next to you to another person.
