A collection as wide in its scope as it is deep in its insights, it draws on what has obviously been a life well lived. In his Preface, the author says that these essays are about “values,” a subject often disparaged as banal. Nothing in this book would fit that description. Even when it’s dealing with subjects as seemingly commonplace as “silence” or “ garbage” or “wedding photographs,” we are in the presence of an original, creative mind. In language as precise as it is elegant, he ranges over realities both absurd and exalted. He alludes, not just to saints (Augustine, Aquinas, Paul) and philosophers (Bertrand Russell, Michel Foucault), but to a huge panoply of poets and novelists (Emily Dickinson, Miguel de Unamuno, TS Eliot, George Orwell Marcel Proust, Nikoz Kazantzakis, Alexander Solshenitsyn), as well as pop icons (Charlie Chaplin, the Spice Girls, Sunset Boulevard). The tone is at times gentle; at others, humorous; at others, angry, even indignant. But always, it is – perhaps, surprisingly – humble. We are in the presence of a teacher whose wisdom is hard earned. - Cristina Pantoja Hidalgo
