It took them 10 years to get from Psalms to Ecclesiastes, and it's only one book

Check out this long and thoughtful reflection on The Challenge of Ecclesiastes by David Peebles Williamson, interacting with a number of Scriptural passages as well as with Albert Camus, Stanley Hauerwas, "I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For," St. Jerome, and a lecture by Nick Cave. Thanks David for pointing me to your piece.
Excerpt: [The cry of Koheleth] is the equivalent of a Hollywood ending where the hero is about to passionately embrace the heroine he has rescued from certain peril. She falls into his grasp, the music swells, he leans forward, and then turns to the camera and says: 'This is all pretty pointless, isn’t it?'
