The world around us is often starkly divided between good and bad, black and white, vice and virtue, but is it truly all that clear? In truth, there is more gray area than there is black or white, and there is more average than good or bad. The view from each side, however, is one that you feel drawn into and, when you can imagine them both as stark and cold, it draws you even more. The poetry and the beauty around us seem to make these points even more succinctly. Vice and Virtue, by Paul Kloschinsky, is one way that you can see all of the good and the bad throughout the world and throughout each of us.
This is a book that definitely paints pictures with words. You feel like you’re the social outcast, standing on the outside, looking in and wondering what it is that society feels is so wrong with you. You feel like you’re experiencing the day at the park, the noise of the city, spirits and grief, money and gods of all backgrounds and religions. It’s definitely about the good and the bad that exist in all of us and just how they can coexist without making us good or bad ourselves. It’s all about finding your own balance and achieving your own happiness in Vice and Virtue. Looking at both sides from the point of view of the extremes and the clear and brilliant views of someone who can really paint the picture is the best way to know.
