We can either remain here and decide this is our own small world with its boundaries – according to your myth; or we can lift it up one side of it and crawl out, and find out there’s no boundaries, according to fact.” But wait... “But one of us has gotta hold it while the other crawls out,” says Fact, “and when he’s out he’s gotta hold it for the other to crawl out.” “Say, who crawls out first?” asks Myth, “I ain’t lifting it if it is not me." “Nor I,” says Fact. (!!!) That means our first proposition was wrong. Tribalism ain’t the greatest of them bottles. Fear is. Fear of being left behind. And every other fear you and I have ever known.< Less

The lion and the Eagle, verbal combatants in the debate, antagonize over the question in stark vocabulary and lay it... More > bare, leaving nothing uncovered. The book delves into the issue and dissects it in deep detail. In striking symbolism and bold assertions, The Debate comes close to solving the question - and some more: Does sex matter? Does love matter? Can sex wait? Can love wait? The Debate in itself does not pledge to provide an answer, but its end is a dubious promise to do so in the persistent pertinent debate. It characterizes the raging conflict (the dilemma itself) within the individual trying to find a stand.< Less

"...Guilty of Innocence is in the order of Portnoy’s Complaint and Fools Paradise. Its aim: to give them people a chance to relive it again, to rejuvenate the past."
