About the book
Figures of the One Must Go
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.

...Crime and punishment are deftly explored with the idea that “if somebody likes to see punitive actions, there may be many reasons, but he would never agree that he does it for emotional balance.” A rendition of one man’s experience working in a cleanup operation following the 9/11 attacks in New York City is quite touching, particularly with the image of an area “blanket-covered by the black glass up to the fifty-fourth floor facing Towers Place.” The great hurdle for readers will be to separate such astuteness from more confounding commentary. Doing so provides plenty of remarkable takeaways, though this sifting is far from an easy task...
Unique. Exceptional to a very marked extent. I read the entire book. The stories 'Thorny Days and 'Broken Key' affected my mind. I'd recommend such a book to the professors and students at my college.
Great book written by an author who will challenge you to consider your own concepts of life. The audio version is very professionally done.
This book is not only unconventional, but also unusual and rare, like a jewel that you, by chance, find only once in your lifetime. For me, this is the most important philosophy book I read about our modern age. The various chapters faced every side of our modern lifestyle, through four different philosophical paths, which are simultaneously political, vehement and spiritual.
