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.
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.
