for the book Shoes with Wings
“I was wondering a few days ago what we are looking for when we read literature. I concluded that what we seek is a kind of justice. The justice of beauty. The justice of truth. This is the justice which Shoes with wings staunchly defends. With the poetic gaze operating as an escape but also as a renewed, possibly different way of wandering through the world and making contact with it. A way of redefining and transforming it. With the power for change and hope. A power, finally, of truth, substance and humanity.”
