Trapped in the mystery and the unseen, the main character of the book seems to live in a crystalline reality, like the creatures destined to live for a single summer and stretching their lifetime through the fall that is not for them. It is the beauty of a purifying love that will lead him to the torment of knowledge. And it is the dead soldier who will make him aware of his insignificance. He is alone marking the tormenting path of man on earth. A price for his forbidden knowledge.
Using my dreams as navigation, I tried to reach the sanctuary of the soul, to reach the other truth, the inexplicable. An experience that makes the novel fragile and bare in the hands of the reader.
