Lester Crawford is a writer of prose and fiction. Among his many awards and honors, Lester was the first to receive the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for his short fiction.
In the story, Lester’s character, a man named David, is introduced to us by his mentor, a man named Tim, who has a different name. Tim describes Lester as a smart guy with a great sense of humor. Tim asks Lester if he can help him write a short story on the subject of David’s name.
Lesters answer to Tim is an amusingly self-deprecating answer that’s actually rather revealing. David’s name is a pseudonym. It’s a pseudonym that’s used by his family and friends. David’s name is a pseudonym, but it’s not the way he identifies himself. I’m glad Tim didn’t ask for an actual name, because that would have been a very different and disturbing way of asking for a name. I’m glad the writer didn’t ask for a name.
There’s a lot of interesting things you can learn about your own identity by asking yourself a lot of questions. And while it’s not the same thing as a name, I think it’s even more interesting to use the name of a name that we don’t know for something that’s not a name. Its not a name that we know, but a name that we don’t know that we know.
That is, if you know it, you know it, if you dont know it, you dont know it.
I have to agree with the writer. My name is Lester. I don’t know of a lot of things about myself, but I do know that I am not a man. There is no way I could answer Lester Crawford’s questions and make him understand how we are not a man. If there were, then Lester would be Lester Crawford, but he doesn’t know that.
Lester Crawford is an eccentric millionaire who lives in a mansion in the suburbs of Boston. He is a mystery to his friends and family, who think he’s nuts. Once he starts talking, though, I can’t help but think he is a little nuts himself. He isn’t sure he can explain why he’s on the island and what’s happening to him. It’s as if he has a mental breakdown every time he opens his mouth.
Lester is a man who is still recovering from a mental breakdown. But we all know that he isnt himself. I guess he isnt really himself because he isnt really crazy. Its as if the mental breakdown is taking over his reality. I think thats what happens when you turn your brain off for too long. The man on the island isnt crazy. He is just a man trying to get his thoughts together.
This is an interesting idea, and I think it is totally plausible that a man on the island would not be able to recognize his own self. In fact, I think that the fact that he is not himself is the most important thing about him. Without that, we would have to have a great deal of faith in the Islander’s mental stability and sanity.
