Konrad Ventana's The Unbearable Sadness of Zilch is positively Post-Lux- post-modern, post-enlightenment drama that exposes the pathos of creativity-a moveable feast for anyone who loves Hollywood stories and film noir.
The Unbearable Sadness of Zilch is a treatise on existentialism, modernism, and the emergence of nouveau feminism. Set in Hollywood Neo-noir and guided by an intrepid philosophical counselor (life coach), the reader investigates The Lost Love of the Latest Tycoon, examining the role of the muse, the magnificent intemperate impulses of the femme fatale, and the allure of the casting couch, while witnessing the fall of an empire in the twilight of the egoists.
The author, an American Scientist and Visionary, provides a unique view of the creative process and its varied sources. Using the pseudonym, Konrad Ventana, literally 'Bold Counsel through a Window,' the author looks behind the scenes at the ideologies of our modern times and examines the potential for future development.
