How should I Love You, My New Little One? tells the story of a patient, the artist himself, who, with the help of his child therapist, hopes to overcome his weakness and transform his disease into something useful for the post-revolutionary society. The healing process involves eating thirty glyph-shaped cookies which will impregnate the patient with a new language.
