Summary
Losing Beck is the story of Jennie Silver, who is trying to get over a man who was greatly influenced by the renowned Hungarian emigré novelist Avigdor Element. Spanning a hundred years of history from when Nijinsky danced "The Afternoon of the Faun" in Paris in 1912, through World Wars I and II, to very close to the present, Jennie keeps a diary, writes a play and a novella in her attempt to control her desperate, high-pitched emotions focused on a man she is uncontrollably drawn to and at the same time finds repugnant. A man who is one of the keepers and part of the legacy of Element's bad behavior
Summary
When Avigdor Element’s hundred year legacy falls into the hands of the writer Jennie Silver, she creates a diary, a play and a novella in an attempt to psychologically escape a man who has imprisoned her mind and who was very much influenced by Element’s bad behavior
