"Like Dionysus himself, Thaddeus is twice-born. Seems the first time, in the a.m., he managed to bring the womb along with him. So they stuffed him back in, separated him from the uterine lining, &, in the p.m., re-delivered him. All on a Halloween day in New Orleans. And since the good padre couldn't very well name our protagonist after the dithyrambic god of tantric intoxication, he went with (Jude) Thaddeus, the flame-headed patron of desperate cases & lost causes. In lieu of/en route to being thrice-born, he aspires to leave behind- in tubs of Tupperware- ten thousand x-fine pen-&-ink line drawings. As for a price tag, well, he'd rather give you a drawing gratis, for, were he to charge what it cost him, you couldn't begin to afford it, Cap'n."
—David Rowe, from the Introduction
