Playa de España


                  It’s not the architecture but the people. The man as he exposes the cane he grips in the stance he adopts to stare upwards, shifting his body to the side, thereby revealing his engroundment to the earth; it’s the child with the paper airplane that glides to gravity as he bounds up stairs where men have stormed up in less fervour to kill than he who seeks to safeguard the first flight of his own creation, wanting it to take flight under the illusion of control and not by accident but by will.  397 palabras más

On 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being'

I’ve finally finished reading this book and my experience of it can best be summed up in the words ‘Y-y-e-e-ah… no.’

Had Kundera stuck to writing about Czech politics I’d have given him a place among my Reread When the World Seems Too Full of Bullshit titles, but because he spent more of the novel demonstrating his ability to generate claptrap about women, sex and philosophy I’ve placed him instead on the Recommend Enthusiastically When Interrogated by the Bullshit-Blind About Your Reading Habits shelf. 501 palabras más

The bowler hat was a motif in the musical composition that was Sabina’s life. It returned again and again, each time with a different meaning, and all the meanings flowed through the bowler hat like water through a riverbed. 256 palabras más
