Using text excerpts from Chapter 3 of Knots by RD Laing, published in 1970, Silverberg replaced the names (Jack & Jill) for letters of the alphabet to create an abecedarium that echoes the truth and absurdity of Laing’s transformative writing about relationships.

A photograph of Laing's face is split in half on the two inside covers.
