The collection of essays and illustrations opens up new perspectives on the myth of Kalervo Palsa, the mad artist. Behind the front of a misunderstood genius, there was a more subtle personality, a keen observer of himself, his friends, family, and surroundings, whose art transcends the merely confessionary and autobiographical to become universally human and ever topical.
