Description

"Aurora is a tremendous work. Aurora is what a literary work should be: fully human. It is also what used to be known as a major literary work because it's rare to its time. It represents a leading edge of consciousness, courage, and social need. A major work! That's why it must be buried, as we know. I'm glad I can be part of it. Aurora is written at a consistently intense, dynamic level. I wish it could be 500 pages and dropped like a sonic boom on all the acclaimed literary centers of the world and be released like a climatic change for the good in the rest of the world. Perhaps the most vital feature or effect of Aurora is that it expands consciousness, or perception. It thinks the unthinkable: the bankruptcy and worse of The Louvre, etc, the culture. It does what a lot of great works of art do: it criticizes art itself, explicitly and implicitly, and in doing so helps to make the needed room for itself, in the world of art and in the world in general. It creates and helps generate new thought, understanding, perception going forward. It helps not only express the full human condition; it helps transform it. It's a working work of art, a badly needed new experience. It enters the battle. It will be ignored, dismissed, and fought by the old world, while by the new world it will be part of another story entirely." - Tony Christini, author of Homefront

About Andre Vltchek

Philosopher, novelist, filmmaker, investigative journalist, poet, playwright, and photographer, Andre Vltchek is a revolutionary, internationalist and globetrotter. In all his work, he confronts Western imperialism and the Western regime imposed on the world. He has covered dozens of war zones and conflicts from Iraq and Peru to Sri Lanka, Bosnia, Rwanda, Syria, DR Congo and Timor-Leste. His latest books are Exposing Lies of the Empire, Fighting Against Western Imperialism and On Western Terrorism with Noam Chomsky. Point of No Return is his major work of fiction, written in English.

The investigative work of Andre Vltchek appears in countless publications worldwide. Andre Vltchek has produced and directed several documentary films for the left-wing South American television network teleSUR. They deal with diverse topics, from Turkey/Syria to Okinawa, Kenya, Egypt and Indonesia, but all expose the effects of Western imperialism on the Planet. His feature documentary film 'Rwanda Gambit' has been broadcasted by Press TV, and aims at reversing the official narrative on the 1994 genocide, as well as exposing the Rwandan and Ugandan plunder of DR Congo on behalf of Western imperialism. He produced the feature length documentary film about the Indonesian massacres of 1965 in 'Terlena - Breaking of The Nation', as well as in his film about the brutal Somali refugee camp, Dadaab, in Kenya: 'One Flew Over Dadaab'. His Japanese crew filmed his lengthy discussion with Noam Chomsky on the state of the world, which is presently being made into a film.
