Kazbek is a book about books. As such, it will entertain readers with a sense of wonder at how books can entrance even when they appear to lay bare their devices. This book will leave such readers entranced and entertained at how it performs its own role as what a character in Kazbek, the artist Mr. Peer, terms a Small Format Book. Kazbek, the book's main character, is a writer who has been hired by Mr. Peer to provide short textual captions to a series of drawings he has created. These sixteen drawings are included in the second part of novella, with Kazbek's short meditations on each. These, like the book as a whole, do not put an end to anything, thereby demonstrating one of the key "approximations" (defining traits would be too definitive) of the Small Format Book: it is short book that never seems to end. It is also a book readers never expected to find, one that no one knows how to categorize, or what the critics have said about it, or who published it. It is a book that creates a silence so readers can hear the fountain flow.
