A Walk With Grandpa Jan. 24 2015
By James W. Fonseca - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Two elderly gentlemen walk through a small Swiss town talking about life. One does almost all the talking and, as you would expect, they mostly talk about the past and not too much about the future, and with a bit of repetition. But they intersperse their comments with reflections on literature and poetry, music and painting (the title is taken from a famous painting on the cover). They both grew up in the area so they compare the current landscape to that of the past. The book is translated from the German and it is short, 100 pages, about the length of an afternoon walk. I saw the main theme as homage to the ways of life in a small Swiss town. Kind of like taking a walk with an erudite Grandpa.
