In its iterations in Beirut and Amman, The Author is Insane invites strangers to trade personal items for an envelope rearranged pages of the “author's” novel and a cassette-tape recording of the novel in its new order.

The author is part of the ecosystem of The Perfumed Garden, and this performance is one of the earliest experiments in blending the world of the novel with the outside world.
