In the world of books there are two types of writers: those who can write and those who can't. Those who can write are a minority and account for less than 5% of all writers, published or not. The author of thujis book not only falls into the minority, he is on the top of the heap.
I came across “Wild at Heart” by Erazem B. Pintar by chance and decided to read it out of curiosity. I'm glad I took the plunge and read it because I both enjoyed and was fascinated by it.
The book is a collection of articles written by the author over a period of time, a couple of years, at least. Each article deals with a different subject of daily life ranging from human relationships or sailing to sport and cooking and so on, there are way too many to count.
The author is an excellent observer of human nature; something which is more of a curse than a blessing. I guess Erazem's way of dealing with such curse is through writing. And in this he does a fine job.
The writing is entertaining, well thought and surprisingly effortless. Being translated into English the writing has not lost its originality. In fact, hats off the translator for both doing a brilliant job and trying to keep the author's style intact.
I came across issues such as the lack of a contents table and a few typos, but I'm sure they can be dealt with in no time. At times I found the language used to describe people a bit careless and which to an English speaking audience may strike as odd or unpleasant. For example, when the author, during a shopping visit to a US shop, describes the shop assistant as “big bottomed black woman”.
But then you come across gems such as “Learn how to be alone, and you shall never be lonely.” That is the stuff the book is filled with and which to look for.
Above all, when you read “Wild at Heart” by Erazem B. Pintar you get to see and know the man behind it; as he would be talking to you in person, without fluff and speaking his own mind. It is such a rare thing nowadays to come across a writer who bares his or her mind and soul and shares it with the world.
Go and read it, you will be better for it. Highly recommended.
Many people I know shun Erazem's brash and boastful playboy lifestyle, some even think he's just a bluff, and most haven't had the chance to meet him and have a normal conversation with him. I have had but a few chats with him, he offered help where I would expect nobody would, and his problem solving ability is beyond what you see in most people.
I'd like to see this other part in Erazem's book too. Yet probably that is not possible. Maybe it's because he doesn't see it himself, simply because he is it. The Sun can't see it's own shadow, a dolphin can't explain how it learnt how to swim, nor can Erazem really explain the full Erazem in words.
Alas, enjoy the visible Erazem by reading this book, yet if by any chance you get a chance to meet him, do so, because only then will you start to grasp him fully.
Erazem obvious like to challenge thin ice, have fun and share that with us selflessly. It is simply relax when you read him, especially with a glass of wine to tickles the imagination... at the same time he remined me, that no one else can live my life for me. A total Unplug, highly recommend!
