Book is fairly dense and a longer read than you would think. It has some great parts in the beginning but kind of Peter's out.

"My life." It hemmed him in. It was a singular entity, without beginning or end, and yet not infinite... it had, like natural objects, a vague and hesitant purpose, a kind of insistent futility, a smell of dust and violets.

Perhaps it's inevitable; perhaps one has to choose between being nothing at all and impersonating what one is. That would be terrible, it would mean that we were naturally bogus.
