Figures of the One Must Go is a book that dares you to read it. This modernist philosophical work adopts a playful attitude with the words within. Words evolve, multiply, surprise, and delight in this chronicle of the four different paths of life. Are you brave enough to walk down the philosophical path, the psychological path, the political path, and the lyrical path? Each one presents challenging ideas about the nature of life and the long history of the human race. While these ideas have serious ramifications, author Victor Living never loses his love of language. His unique voice keeps the conversation going and makes the speaker feel like an old friend.
Even the name “Victor Living” is a play on words, it’s a symbolical name-creation. Living’s intent, through the conversations he imagines between disparate actors on the world’s stage, is to ask you what “living” truly means to you. To help you find an answer, Living looks both into the past and to the future. From a poignant flashback to the 9/11 attacks to childhood ruminations, Living’s experimental work will speak to your heart and open your mind to new ideas and possibilities.
