To Be Human Against All Odds, illustrated with the author’s own drawings and photographs, takes a personal yet radical look at the state to which civilization has driven itself. Against the backdrop of a journey to Japan, Franck probes both himself and others for an answer to the most fundamental of questions: What does it mean to be truly human? In elegantly crafted prose Franck issues a powerful call to unmask our inhumanity and rediscover the Human Imperative.
Provocative . Superb insight and awakening power in its phrasing and its `trickster’ aspect . Eventually we must tease the world out of its solemn concern with nothingness.
Franck puts forcefully before us the message that human perfection is not an elitist ideal, but a simple realization of the depth of our true humanness.
A remarkable, multi-dimensional approach to the question of the authentically human…. Provides the essentials of a truly liberal education. I shall unavoidably be ‘cribbing’ from it.
An admirable use of English, so sadly rare these days . Splendid, profounda sheer delight!.
