    Hero In The Labyrinth This is book is modern masterpiece. It is a wise and compassionate, as well as often ironic and very funny, delineation of the human condition, of the plight of ‘everyman’ at the very end of the twentieth century. The human being through whom we see revealed all the stark emptiness of urban life is a single man approaching his fiftieth birthday who is desperately seeking meaning in his life. He is looks at the events of his daily existence as if from above, a disinterested observer, and despite the bleakness, finds hope. Hope fuels his searching, his endless reading, and draws the saving thread through the seemingly meaningless labyrinth of his daily life. He becomes a modern Hero in his stoic resolve to keep on questioning, to keep on seeking answers to life’s riddles. Yes, this Hero is often irritatingly self-absorbed and depressive, but he is also gentle and sensitive. He wears many masks and in lifting these masks even briefly, a courageous Hero is revealed.... More > He does not succumb to the inherent nihilism of the times and in the end we witness a life-affirming celebration of the indominitable human spirit, of an individual ‘I’.< Less

    "The Hero" .......I could not put it down but had to carry it around with me to find out what the next day would bring in Hero's life. William has a special knack of creating excitement and humour in the every day happenings in one's life. I am left wishing that there will be a sequel.
