Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
English is my second language, and I admit, I don't understand poems or song lyrics... and I used to love poems in my native Hungarian.
This book is written in a language that you have to hang on to allow it to wash over you, get you wet, awaken your inside, deep, where rhythm, music, drum circles, dance live, beyond words.
I read it totally mesmerized, crying from being moved.
There is story, there are stories, but instead of reading stories, the kind of writing only a poet or a poem translator can do, took me into the heart of what is happening, and I cried part of the story, not at the story... if that makes any sense.
Prepare to be washed away, lifted up, twirled, twisted, knotted by the music of this book.
Wonderful experience.
