“Stuck in her memories, she sat in a bathtub and glided through the moments of years gone by, searching for a connection with the present.”
In this collection of short stories, the protagonists explore their past in fictional worlds, looking for the memory lane that would lead them to the answers to their existential questions, help them get over loss, or give meaning to their present. Leonora Flis has an exceptional talent for details that bring her stories to life with smells, colours and sounds. They cut sharply not only into the lives of the characters, but also into the fabric of the narrative, as well as into readers, as they pull them out of their comfort zones into which they could easily sink when faced with the beauty that pervades the author’s stories. By this we mean the palpable descriptions of music or dance or even of the atmosphere of family life or the domesticity of relationships.
