Ventriloquist is an unusual book. It is not a novel, a book of poetry or a work of art; it is all three in one. The protagonist of this story without plot is a rebellious figure. Unabashed, he spews out his feelings from the pit of his stomach. He deals in obnoxious statements, while doubt has the upper hand. Masters are plentiful in this script: "I am the living podium upon which different actors walk." Until the curtain is lifted.
