for the book Shoes with Wings
“Racism, unemployment, difference, the love of animals, the importance of poetry and fairytales, solidarity, the need for companionship, family relationships, all get a hearing in the book’s pages, making up a world where problems will never be easily solved. A world everyone can recognize. Life does have a difficult side. But that is where love, tolerance, acceptance and struggle reside. Shoes with wings that will allow man to fly were never made, yet, toil, understanding, love can raise him high.”
