(Light Wind in Parma) There are writers who can be mistaken for literature itself, they divide into a physical and metaphorical persona, made of words and phrases that have been written down throughout time by other writers. Enrique Vila-Matas, is just like one of these human books who wanders freely around the world. Light wind in Parma is a journey through literature. This collection of essays, stories and reflections on writers, books, films, and places is a journey to the border between fiction and reality – where fiction and reality become life itself.
