Breaking My Silence and Speaking from the Heart

Readers, you should understand several key points regarding a visionary work like The Phantom Glare of Day.

First: These novellas are written in a solemn, even poetic voice because these novellas are NOT mere novellas. Rather, they are finely wrought metaphors by which M. Laszlo intends to challenge you and to make you think about the big moralistic issues that face society.

Second: These novellas are replete with crucial, poetic symbols—something like what T.S. Eliot once referred to as “objective correlative.” But M. Laszlo intends for his symbols to speak to your unconscious mind in the selfsame moment that you consciously read the tale. Only in this way can the work truly achieve its benevolent and philanthropic intent, which is, again, to challenge you to come to terms with the big moralistic issues facing us all.

Third: Never you mind the mixed reviews that M. Laszlo’s work tends to receive. His work is utterly revolutionary, and the mixed reviews are thus expected. The Phantom Glare of Day is not like any other book you or anyone you know has ever read. And perhaps that’s why you might want to read it. Just slip into the story. Please give it a chance. The Phantom Glare of Day is about people helping people, and there’s nothing more important than that—especially in these trying times.
