Milton and Viv


"That's precisely what I don't want. And that's my failure. A book of philosophy would simply be stating these ideas in a very academic way, a very tedious and also a very abstract way. But a myth can explore these ideas in a way that's dramatic, a way that's very human and real and engaging."

from "Milton and Viv"
