The story is that of betrayal, violation of friendship, and love in
today's world. Anyone can be a suspect under the Patriot Act, which
makes a system that would like to call itself "democratic," no
different from the worst case of totalitarian regimes known in the
history of mankind. The main character, framed by his former
friend, is deported from the United States to Rumania, where he
ends up in a concentration camp, tortured and deprived of his civil
rights. Those who finally found out that Jack was innocent, do
nothing. Afraid of embarrassment, they keep silent. Hopeless and
stripped of any sense, Jack is liberated by a global event, when a
black hole moving at incredible speed through space approaches
Earth and destroys half the planet. Jack escapes his prison and
walks through a crippled world, discovering that, as one of this
author's favorite once said: 'a true life, life in the end
discovered and explained, the only life hence simply lived through,
that's literature.' . Drawing on a massive body of learning that
ranges from philosophy to theology, science, and art history, the
author creates a story that is a conglomerate of human knowledge
reflecting the problems Western culture faces today. Jack Haberek
speaks five languages. A building manager in Brooklyn, New York,
this is his tenth book. "I grew up in Silesia (today's Poland) and
then in Germany (Munich). My first class of what's called in
Europe, Lycee, I did in Strasbourg, France. My master's degree I
got from the university of Breslau (Wroclaw) in German literature.
I continued at the doctoral level in Vienna." Publisher's website:
