Product description

Product Description

This book is a collection of stories that will echo in the hearts of all who are familiar with this kind of life, but perhaps can – even more significantly-- create the illusion of an echo even in those people, who perhaps unfamiliar with this kind of life but, want to understand it, in order to know how to understand and live together with “the neighbours”, given that we are all neighbours, one of the other. For me, this is the most important and civilized function of literature: to open a door for the readers that allows them to leave their own loneliness behind and instead share the loneliness of the Other. And, Tomás Modesto Galán in this book, manages to achieve this through the voice of a child, but by the experience of an adult - - and the sensibility of an artist. I love these stories, stories that with their innocence imitate so well the thinking process of children, and for the profundity of ideas that they present and challenge the intellect. They also remind me of “magical realism” with the almost human like animals in dreamed situations, but with everything, and in this respect it has its’ roots in real life, in the difficult situations that confront the immigrant, the poor and the Other.
