This work is so stunning and affecting, I do not trust my own abilities of expression to do it justice. Let me be clear: this is one of the most amazing works of literature I have ever read. It is unique, lyrical, addictive, and haunting. It saddens me that it is not more widely read in the English world.

A parable for modern life, with lyric beauty and relevance for our own times on Spaceship Earth. Wonderfully rendered into English by Stephen Klass.
