I read it as part of the collection The Best of Gene Wolfe. As usual, we have an unreliable narrator, who might be drugged with the eggs, or the journal has been forged by the police. In addition, there are several dreamfilled fictionary scenes contrasted by hyper-philosophical musings about levels of abstractions. The novella contains more riddles than I can count.

I see him as having a large wellspring of talent that, for a number of reasons, goes off track too frequently to write much that is genuinely successful, even if it is highly evocative and complex. So among the world-building riches that his work offers, I think the problem arises in his combination and misalignment of narrative epistemic subjectivity and factual absolutism.
