Synopsis:

Can you put a price on speaking what you deeply truly believe in Or is the voicing of personal belief priceless and fundamental to one s own development Victor is going through a tumultuous patch of life Tortured and fading he writes to his friend and brother in arms Xavier asking for an open ear and a helping hand but he gets more than he expected supportive as they may be Xavier s responses are forceful and quite unnerving and they spark a fierce correspondence that begins to examine reality rather than just reaffirm it The exchange of ideas between the two friends gradually proliferates piece by piece and story by story and their perspectives expand into broader issues and begin to blend into one another Sometimes hard to digest and even harder to delineate they seem to be set nowhere specific taking them on a ride around a misty stage where the actors are faceless and the scenes nameless Reality begins to break down making less sense with every insight gained and a grim and overwhelming shadow starts to settle on an increasingly meaningless world where the spirit of life is under attack by greed anger fear and disillusionment With everything in turmoil and the future under question it slowly becomes apparent that the way forward out of the shadow and into a world of inspiration is going to be hard to find Behind the Mirror is a stimulating roller coaster ride through the politics personal dilemmas mystery and magic humor and tragedy of the human condition in the 21st century Beautifully written and full of insights and fresh approaches to old problems I couldn t put it down Graham Hancock author of The Sign and the Seal and Fingerprints of the Gods www behindthemirror com

From the Back Cover:

`Can you put a price on speaking what you deeply, truly believe in? Or is the voicing of personal belief priceless and fundamental to one's own development...?' Victor is going through a tumultuous patch of life, so he writes to his friend and brother in arms, Xavier, asking for an open ear and honest opinions. The outspoken correspondence takes off, through which they exchange numerous ideas and stories, and their perspectives gradually expand into ever broader issues. Set nowhere specific, their writings take them on a ride around a misty stage where the actors are faceless and the scenes nameless. Reality begins to break down, making less sense with every insight gained, and they must inevitably face a grim and insidious shadow that is encroaching on the spirit of life. Realizing that there are no shortcuts to restitution they begin to understand their predicament and gradually come to terms with one very disturbing fact: the only way to escape the shadow is to actually stand up and walk right through it.
