This is a book of wonderful stories that will capture any reader’s attention. It is written clearly but also with profound death and perspicacity.
Dust is everywhere. But what is it? Is it the dust of death, blowing across a Mediterranean island and etched by the footprints f a small boy?
Is it the fine but offending particles on the wings of angels and archangels so carefully bushed away by the Vergerine Sisters in the nave of the cathedral?
Or is it the smoke languidly rising from the one illicit cigarette?
In this book, Timothy Findley weaves the consciousness of mortality with the everyday acts of living and loving, of desire and faith. The result is a wonderful collection of unforgettable stories which swings with a smooth arc between joy and bitterness, satire, and candor, comedy and tragedy.
These stories will capture all the topics that people need to become spellbound to a book and a story. The stories are short enough to be read in one sitting.
I loved the book from start to finish! I enjoy a book of short stories that talk about series topics such as death and dying and much more.
