Konrad Ventana throws open the curtain to a perennial drama with a depth of language that can only be described as symphonic. Blazing with eye-opening drama, keen psychological insights, and layers of linguistic pyrotechnics, the reader is at once awed and entertained.

This riveting drama follows the trail of a western outlaw biochemist of the subterranean territories through the neo-shamanistic dystopia, neo-contemplative hoo-ha, and blatant neoteny of the 1970's New Age movements on the hunt for more profound and sublime naturalistic roots. The reader will be stunned by the enduring power of 'artistic ideals' vis-ŕ-vis wan and vapid 'philosophical idealisms' in molding the indomitable traditions of society. With this first Post-Lux Swan Song, Konrad Ventana manipulates language in a timeless theme as elegant as a classical ballet, as poignant as our heartfelt emotions, and as enduring as the resonance of a new and illuminating apperception. This most remarkable book is truly a picture window to behold.
